Bonnie Nagel is an Associate Professor in the Departments of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience. Her clinical interests are in the area of pediatric neuropsychology. She has extensive experience in the clinical neuropsychological evaluation of children and adolescents with a variety of disorders and diagnoses. Dr. Nagel’s research focuses on adolescent brain and cognitive development in healthy and at-risk populations. Her recent work has focused on understanding the development of executive, emotional, and reward-based systems in the brain and how perturbations to these systems may result in a heightened vulnerability for psychopathology during the adolescent years. Most recently, she has been working to identify neurobiological markers of risk for addiction.
