Emily Grossner, Ph.D.

VA Clinical Neuropsychology Post Doctoral Fellow

  • Dr. Emily Grossner earned her B.A. in psychology at Franklin & Marshall College. She earned her M.S. in experimental psychology with an emphasis in neuropsychology from Saint Joseph’s University under the direction of Dr. Philip Schatz. Her research during her master’s program focused on the validation of computerized cognitive assessment measures for mild traumatic brain injury (TBI). Following the completion of her master’s degree, she obtained her Ph.D. in adult clinical psychology with a focus in clinical neuropsychology from Penn State University under the direction of Dr. Frank Hillary. 
  • Her research primarily focused on novel measurements of metacognition following moderate-severe TBI and neural correlates of this ability using both structural (e.g., volumetric) and functional (e.g., resting state connectivity) neuroimaging techniques. Other areas of research interest have included the impact of brain lesions on neural networks and the use of dynamic functional connectivity to quantify brain changes after illness or injury. Dr. Grossner completed her predoctoral clinical internship at VA Palo Alto in the neuropsychology track. She is currently a postdoctoral fellow in clinical neuropsychology at VA Palo Alto.
