The McNamara Lab

Welcome to the website of the McNamara Lab. Our lab takes a cognitive neuroscience and psychological approach to the study of Parkinson’s Disease, religion, and sleep.

We use both experimental and comparative techniques to investigate the functions and evolution of a number of neurobehavioral systems/traits relevant to the neurologic clinical sciences. We focus on three broad areas of research: sleep, Parkinson’s Disease, and religion. By clicking on any one of the links provided on this page, you will be able to learn more about the projects we are working on at present.  Our main current project is “Cognition and Religious Coping in Parkinson’s Disease“.
