Andy Newsom graduated from Eastern Kentucky University in 2007 with a B.S. in psychology and again in 2008 with his M.S. in general psychology. During his tenure at Eastern Kentucky, he had the pleasure of studying abroad in both Europe and South America as well as working on a variety of research projects. Andy also completed a practicum at the University of Kentucky’s Sanders-Brown Center on Aging in Lexington, Kentucky where some of his interests were honed. Andy is currently a first-year doctoral student in the Clinical Psychology Program. His research interests are mostly in the area of aging, specifically in neuropsychology, both testing and imaging. He is, at the moment, working on a project examining the diagnostic utility of Electroencephalography (EEG) for Alzheimer’s disease.
