Bryce Mander, PhD
Bryce Mander is an assistant professor in the department of psychiatry and human behavior at University of California, Irvine. His current research focus considers the role of sleep in cognitive aging, with specific interest in the associations between sleep disturbance, neurodegenerative biomarkers, and cognitive impairment in cognitively healthy older adults at increased risk for dementia. The ultimate goal of his research program is to characterize how and when sleep interacts with neurodegenerative pathology and to determine if sleep interventions can effectively promote healthy cognitive aging in older adults at risk for neurodegenerative dementias. He received his PhD in neuroscience from Northwestern University and completed his postdoctoral training at University of California, Berkeley.
