Monday, October 21st 5-6 PM in MUEN D156
Dr. Emily Richardson
Dr. Richardson is a clinical neuropsychologist, with specialties in the evaluation of cognitive changes related to brain disorders in adults, cognitive declines in older persons due to Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, and learning disabilities across the lifespan. Dr. Richardson's research interests include cognitive correlates and predictors of functional behaviors associated with independence in older adults. For example, recent research has shown that measures of visual attention correlate with driving performance and predict driving crashes in older individuals. Ongoing research is also focusing on cognitive and biological interventions to ameliorate risk of decline in aging populations.
