Kathleen Pagulayan, PhD

I am an Associate Professor in the UW Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, an investigator in the VA Northwest Mental Illness Research Education and Clinical Center, and a clinical neuropsychologist at VA Puget Sound, Seattle Division (Seattle VA). My research focuses on improving functional outcome following traumatic brain injury (TBI), with an emphasis on understanding neural substrates of post-injury cognitive difficulties and evaluating novel treatment interventions. I currently lead the Clinical Neuropsychology Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Seattle VA.
