Michael Scullin, PhD, Baylor University

Dr. Scullin is the assistant professor of psychology and neuroscience and the director of the sleep neuroscience and cognition laboratory at Baylor University. Dr. Scullin completed his doctorate in the Behavior, Brain, and Cognition program at Washington University in St. Louis and then a post-doctoral fellowship in the Neurology and Sleep Medicine program at Emory University School of Medicine. He is involved in service committees for the Sleep Research Society and the American Psychological Association and he co-founded the APA journal Translational Issues in Psychological Science.

Dr. Scullin will cover the mechanisms by which sleep health interacts with brain health. His research investigates how sleep physiology impacts memory, education, health, and aging. Within this broader framework, his program aims to 1) translate basic sleep science into improved STEM learning and persistence in college students, 2) investigate how sleep changes with aging, including informing how changes in sleep habits and sleep physiology contribute to cognitive aging and dementia, and 3) test behavioral interventions for improving sleep health.
