Lab Coordinator: Kristina PetersonKristina Peterson received her bachelor’s in Psychology from the University of California at Davis and began working with Dr. Hayes in the spring of 2013 as a research assistant. She previously worked in the Cognitive Aging and Neuroimaging lab with Dr. Nancy A. Dennis, studying the neural correlates of memory in normal aging. After her work in the Memory Disorders Research Center at the Boston VA, Kristina intends to pursue a doctoral degree in clinical psychology with specialization in neuropsychology. Kristina is interested in continuing research of the normal and abnormal processes of memory and executive function with the use of MRI techniques.
