About Dawn Bowers

Dawn Bowers is a Professor and clinical/research neuropsychologist in the Departments of Clinical & Health Psychology and Neurology at the University of Florida. She is a UF Research Foundation Professor, the Director of the Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory at the Fixel Institute, and neuropsychology director for the UF Movement Disorders and Neurorestoration program. Dr. Bowers received her Ph.D. from the University of Florida, interned at Boston University/Boston Veterans Administration Hospital (with an externship at the Framingham Heart Project), and completed a post-doctoral fellowship in behavioral neurology at the University of Florida. She is internationally known for her expertise in neurocognitive and emotion processing changes associated with age related disorders including Parkinson disease, Essential Tremor, Alzheimer’s disease and other neurologic disorders. Her research has spanned  laterality, attention and memory, and neuropsychology of emotion using TMS, ERP, psychophysiology, near infrared stimulation, computational modeling, and face digitizing. She has received continuous research funding by NIH and other foundations since 1981. She has over 225 peer-reviewed research articles, over 350 peer-reviewed research presentations, 1 co-authored book, and 1 clinical test.   She is strongly committed to clinical and research training of predoctoral and post-doctoral fellows and is MPI of an NINDS-funded T32 in Interdisciplinary Training in Movement Disorders and Neurorestoration. She sees patients clinically for neuropsychological assessment and intervention at the Fixel Center. Her lab website: https://cogneuro.phhp.ufl.edu

Research Profile

Current research focuses on psychophysiological and behavioral signatures of cognitive/emotional change associated with normal aging and  Parkinson disease  and novel treatment approaches for apathy and executive dysfunction.  Her laboratory uses a variety of different tools to investigate hypothesis driven research ranging from transcranial magnetic stimulation, psychophysiology/electrophysiology (ERP), face digitizing, computational modeling, to experimental cognitive probes.
