Chris Reynolds, M.S.
(entered in 2017)
In May 2014, I graduated from University of Missouri with a B.S. in Health Sciences, and minors in Psychology, Sociology, and Leadership in Public Service. While at Mizzou, I worked as a research assistant under Dr. David Beversdorf, in the Cognitive Neuroscience Lab in the Center for Translational Neuroscience. I then went to Arizona State University, where I earned an M.S. in Psychology in May 2017. At ASU, I worked with Dr. Nicole Roberts, in the Emotion, Culture, & Psychophysiology Lab, concentrating predominately on the cognitive and emotional deficits found in patients with psychogenic non-epileptic seizures.
Broadly, I’m interested in using neuroimaging techniques to study the neural mechanisms of attentional processes. More specifically, I’m interested in understanding the differences between reflexive and planned shifts of attention, and how those differences impact cognitive control and flexibility.
I enjoy Chicago sports (White Sox, Blackhawks, Bears, Bulls, and occasionally the Cubs), touring local Milwaukee breweries, and spending time exploring the great outdoors.
