Biography

Dr. Bart Rypma is one of the leading researchers in the area of age-related changes in human memory. His lab studies the effects of physiologic changes of age-related changes in humans using both cognitive and bioengineering approaches. His previous research includes study of neural activity in relation to cognitive efficiency as well as examining white matter integrity in multiple sclerosis. Dr. Bart Rypma has been awarded the Meadows Foundation Endowed Chair in Behavioral and Brain Sciences as well as the Caren and Vin Prothro-Dallas Foundation Award. He also was a nominee for the Provost’s Award for Faculty Excellence in Undergraduate Mentoring. Dr. Rypma earned his bachelor’s degree from New York University, his master’s degree from Duke University, and his PhD from Georgia Institute of Technology.
