Biography

Dr. Haley plans to admit a new graduate student for Fall of 2014.

I received my Ph.D. degree in Clinical Psychology from the University of Virginia in 2005 after completing a pre-doctoral internship in Neuropsychology and Rehabilitation Medicine at Eastern Virginia Medical School.  Before joining the Clinical Psychology faculty at UT Austin, I spent two years as a Dementia Research Fellow at Brown University, and a visiting research fellow at the Center for Neurological Imaging at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. 

My research examines the biological underpinnings of cognitive impairment associated with aging and dementia. As a clinical neuropsychologist, I am interested in studying the neural substrates of memory, language and executive function in clinical populations, in vivo, by utilizing functional neuroimaging (fMRI) and neurospectroscopy (1H MRS). I also conduct work to determine how disturbances in glucose metabolism, hormonal regulation, and cardiovascular functioning contribute to changes in cognition, brain morphology, and energy metabolism. My goal is to bridge knowledge from basic and clinical neuroscience with the aim of improving how we understand, predict, and treat age- and disease-related cognitive impairment.

Course Description

The objective of this course is to introduce you to what is known about the physiological causes and consequences of mental illness. We will discuss how the recognition of cognitive impairment associated with mental illness can be used to help with differential diagnosis, prognosis and treatment planning. Most of the assigned readings are primary source articles intended to give you a flavor of the empirical research done on the subject. A review of symptoms, neurophysiology and psychopharmacology as well as discussion of the assigned readings will be done in class.

Course Requirements

Class attendance is important. Students will be expected to read the assigned articles, write response papers and participate in class discussion. This course has a substantial writing component and carries a writing (Wr) flag. In addition to weekly response papers, students will be expected to write a research proposal, present the proposal in class and rate the presentations of their classmates. Participation will be reflected

in the final grade. 

Grading Policy

The course grade will be based on the total points earned on response papers, research proposal including proposal drafts, proposal presentation and class participation

Course Objectives:  Students will acquire an appreciation for, as well as some knowledge of the scientific
method as it is applied within the field of psychology.  Students will learn to critically evaluate published
research, to form empirically testable hypotheses, and to design and conduct experiments relevant to those
hypotheses.  Students also will learn to employ computers to statistically describe and evaluate experimental
data.  Considerable emphasis will be placed on writing of research reports with clarity and objectivity.
 
Prerequisites:  The Psychology Department will drop all students who do not meet the following prerequisites: 
C or better in Psy 301; credit for Math 302 or higher level math course; major in Psychology
 
Attendance:  Attendance is expected and required.  Roll will be taken at the beginning of each class and 12
points will be awarded at the end of the semester for attendance.  Those are easy points that can help you very
much if your grade is borderline.  You can miss 2 class periods and still receive full attendance credit.  If you
miss 3-4 class periods, you will receive half attendance credit (6 points).  If you miss > 4 classes, you will
receive no attendance credit.  There are no excused absences, so keep your “free” absences for a rainy day! 
 
Grade Procedures and Examinations:  The course grade will be based on the total of the lecture and laboratory
points.  The lecture and laboratory portions of the course each contribute a possible 300 points to a possible
course total of 600 points. The points for the lecture portion will be based on three “hour” exams, each covering
about one-third of the class material, an optional final exam, and homework assignments.  The final exam will
be divided into three sections, each representing one-third of the class material.  A student may choose not to
take the final exam, or s/he may take one section of the final as a make-up exam, or to improve an hour exam
score. 
 
Taking the final exam will be the only make-up option available, so please DO NOT MISS THE FINAL!

academic accommodations or qualified students with disabilities.  Info:  Office of Dean of Students, 471-6259,
