Elizabeth R. Paitel graduated from St. Norbert College in 2016 with a B.A. in psychology and Spanish. There she began her research endeavors as a McNair Scholar investigating the impact of estradiol on spatial memory in zebra finches. Following a year in this lab, she began to work in the Developmental Decision-Making Laboratory conducting electroencephalography (EEG) research with older adults. Elizabeth currently works with Dr. Kristy Nielson in the Aging, Imaging, and Memory (AIM) Laboratory exploring the neuroscience of cognitive aging. Specific projects focus on investigating event-related potentials (ERPs) as biomarkers of Alzheimer’s disease, heart-rate variability, and Highly Superior Autobiographical Memory (HSAM). Elizabeth has presented research with the AIM Lab nationally and internationally, and her future research will likely examine early detection and intervention with Alzheimer’s disease. Elizabeth’s clinical interests include neuropsychological assessment of adults.
