Patrick Ledwidge, Ph.D.

Dr. Ledwidge is currently Assistant Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience at Baldwin Wallace University and Director of the Cognitive Neuropsychology Lab. He received his Bachelors of Arts from DePauw University and both his Masters and Ph.D. from the University of Nebraska. His research investigates "cognitive intersectionality"- the ways in which cognitive systems facilitate v. compete for mental processing resources. His clinical research focus is in the use of neuroimaging and behavioral methods to examine cognitive, neural, and psychosocial functioning in concussion and other sports-related injuries. He teaches courses in behavioral statistics, research methods, psychophysiology, cognitive neuroscience, and neurocognitive disorders. His hobbies include running, cycling, and traveling with his black Labrador, Cash.
