Thomas M. Van Vleet, PhD

Dr. Van Vleet studies how the mechanisms of attention regulate alertness. The BrainHQ training he has developed is designed to optimize this process to improve cognition in healthy aging and in neurologically and psychiatrically challenged clinical populations. He is also a Research Neuropsychologist at the Veterans’ Affairs (VA) Northern California Health System, where he investigates the behavioral and neural bases of cognitive training-related improvements in veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder and/or traumatic brain injury. He earned a dual doctorate in Neuroscience and Clinical Psychology at Northern Illinois University, with additional training in Neuropsychology at the University of Chicago.
