Jared Tanner, Ph.D., Clinical & Health Psychology, Neuropsychology

Jared holds a degree in Clinical and Health Psychology with an emphasis in Neuropsychology at the University of Florida. His primary research interests involve verbal memory and structural brain MRI in neurodegenerative disorders. “I am particularly interested in understanding how white matter connections between regions change in neurodegenerative disorders and how white matter integrity is related to cognition and memory. Much of my research experience and interests involves cross-disciplinary collaborative work. My dissertation was focused on understanding how verbal memory is affected by Parkinson’s disease as well as how structures that support memory processes are impacted by the disease process,” Jared said. Funding to support his dissertation, Verbal Memory in Non-demented Idiopathic Parkinson’s Disease: A Structural MRI and Quantitative White Matter Tractography Analysis was provided by Catherine Price, Ph.D., by NINDS K23NS060660.
