Jeff received his Ph.D. degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders at the University of Texas at Dallas in 2006. Jeff is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor in the School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences where he teaches a variety of courses in the Doctor of Audiology program. As the Assistant Director of the Texas Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) Laboratory, Jeff’s research aims at understanding the brain mechanisms contributing to the auditory processing difficulties facing some children and adults. His recent Event-Related Potential (ERP) studies focus on the influence of more cognitive factors (e.g., divided and selective attention) on dichotic listening performance in children at risk for APD. As an audiologist, Jeff is also involved in the translation of research findings to the development of better behavioral and electrophysiological procedures for the clinical evaluation of APD.
Mary Kathryn Reagor, M.S.
Mary Kathryn received her B.S. in computer science from Trinity University in 2001. She worked in the Aerospace industry before joining the UT Dallas Ph.D. program in Cognition and Neuroscience in 2006. She recieved her Master's degree in Applied Cognition and Neuroscience from the University of Texas at Dallas in 2008. Her current work involves using eletrophyisiological measures, specifically Event Related Potentials (ERPs), to investigate the neural underpinnings of story comprehension and recognition.
