UT Clinical Neuroscience Lab

The mission of the UT Clinical Neuroscience 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. Current work in the lab is focused on identifying early cognitive vulnerability and isolating the underlying physiological mechanisms.

Cognition is the most important determinant of:

  • Health status
  • Quality of life
  • Functional ability in older age

Preventing cognitive decline is central to ensuring successful aging for our growing population of the elderly. Learn more about our studies.


  • Dr. Haley plans to admit a new graduate student for the Fall of 2023. 
  • Undergraduate research assistants application is currently closed. Check back in Summer 2023 if you are still interested in volunteering.

For age is opportunity no less

Than youth itself, though in another dress,

And as the evening twilight fades away

The sky is filled with stars, invisible by day.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
