This group focuses on cognitive and affective research on healthy aging and patients with psychiatric or neurological disorders. I am open to speaking with students about exploring other topics related to the field of clinical neuroscience or health psychology. Research projects will help students gain research skills and may include designing neuropsychological tests, scoring, and analysis. All projects will encompass learning data management skills, research methods, and analysis of statistical data. There may be some opportunities to learn about structural and functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques.

Students are encouraged to conduct their own research projects and to present results at professional conferences. Students will have the opportunity to write manuscripts for publication in scientific journals and apply for student awards and travel grants. This training is aimed to help the student develop scientific thinking and learn research skills that build the basis for observation and evaluation of clinical cases.

Openings:  2-3 new members to join the group in 2020
