Catherine L. Reed, Ph.D.
I am a cognitive neuroscientist in the Psychology Dept at CMC and Neuroscience group at Keck Science. Using EEG and behavioral methods, my research examines influences of the body on attention, perception, emotional processing, and economic decision making with a particular focus on interpersonal body perception and emotional perception.
