Biography

Dr. Hayes is an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at Boston University School of Medicine, the Associate Director of the Neuroimaging Research for Veterans Center at VA Boston Healthcare System, and a core faculty member of the BU Memory Disorders Research Center. Dr. Hayes graduated from Skidmore College (Biology, Psychology) and completed his doctoral work in Clinical Psychology (Neuropsychology) and Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Arizona. He completed an NRSA-funded cognitive neuroscience-clinical neuropsychology postdoctoral fellowship in the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience at Duke University and the Bryan Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center at Duke University Medical Center. His research interests include the examination of the neural correlates of human memory, studying age-related cognitive and neural-decline, and identification of factors (physical activity, cardiorespiratory fitness, etc) that mitigate cognitive and neural decline. A licensed psychologist, Dr. Hayes clinical interests include neuropsychological assessment of age-related neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, microvascular disease, and frontotemporal dementia, as well as amnesia.
