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-Lincoln. His research investigates "cognitive intersectionality"- the ways in which cognitive systems facilitate v. compete for mental processing resources. He uses this framework to examine cognitive and neurophysiological recovery from sports-related concussion. The goal of his work is to examine how neurophysiological methods may be used to improve diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of sports-related injuries and neuropsychological disorders. He teaches courses in research methods, psychophysiology, cognitive neuroscience, and neurocognitive disorders. His hobbies include running, cycling, and traveling with his black Labrador, Cash.
