Dr. Pannu Hayes is a core faculty member of the Boston VA Neuroimaging Center, and staff psychologist at the National Center for PTSD, Boston VA Healthcare System. She graduated with High Honors in Psychology from the University of California, Berkeley, in 2000. She completed her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology (specialization in Neuropsychology) from the University of Arizona in 2006. She specialized in neuroscience research of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) during her joint-appointed postdoctoral fellowship at the Mental Illness Research Education and Clinical Center (MIRECC) and Duke University Medical Center
Dr. Pannu Hayes currently directs the Trauma Memory Laboratory, which is involved in NIH-funded study of functional changes in the brain associated with trauma memory and emotion regulation using fMRI. Her research program also includes applying sophisticated neuroimaging techniques to study neural changes after traumatic brain injury. As a licensed clinical psychologist, Dr. Pannu Hayes’ clinical interests include neuropsychological assessment of TBI and PTSD in returning veterans from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
