Lindsay Rotblatt, M.A.

BiographyRotblatt

Lindsay graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2011 with a B.S. in Biopsychology and a minor in Edcuation and Applied Psychology. While at UCSB she volunteered at the Neuroscience Research Institute researching the effects of prenatal stress on alcohol addiction. After completing her bachelors, she attended San Diego State University where she completed her M.A. in Psychology with an emphasis in cognitive and behavioral neuroscience. While at SDSU she worked at the Center for Healthy Aging and Neurodegenerative Disease Research investigating the effects of aging and neurodegenerative disease on various cognitive domains (i.e. episodic memory, spatial memory). In 2015 she enrolled in the UF Clinical & Health Psychology progam with a focus in neuropsychology. She is currently a first year doctoral student in the Cognitive Aging Lab of Dr. Michael Marsiske.

Research Focus

Lindsay’s primarly research interests include early detection and discrimination of cognitive deficits assocaited with typical and pathological aging, cognitive training paradigms, behavioral and biolgoical markers of early cogntive decline, Mild Cognitive Impairment, and Alzheimer’s disease. She also has secondary interests on the effects of cardiovascular disease and treatment on cogntiive in aging populations.
