Expertise

I am trained as a Clinical Psychologist with a specialty in neuropsychology (how the brain impacts cognitive abilities). My research interests span neurodegenerative disorders (such as Alzheimer's Disease and Parkinson's Disease), music and dementia, healthy aging, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and epilepsy.  I especially love mentoring undergraduate students as they develop their research skills as student scientists.  I am also the Director of Butler's Neuroscience minor.

Teaching

Courses I teach regularly at Butler include:

     Biological Bases of Behavior (PS 235)

     Advanced Applied Neuroscience (PS 412)

     Food: Pasture, Table, Body and Mind (NW 261)

     Music First! Engaging Student Scientists in Community-Based Research (ID 345)

     Mental Illness: Biological, Psychological, and Sociological Perspectives (SW 275)
