Dr. Bayley serves as a neuroscientist at the WRIISC. He has a research background in basic neuroscience and cognitive neuroscience and his research interests focus on memory disorders. He performed graduate research at the University of California San Diego (UCSD) where he studied memory disorders in patients with various forms of dementia. He completed his postdoctoral training at UCSD in the study of learning and memory in patients with brain lesions using brain imaging and neuropsychological techniques.
His current research interests include the treatment of long-term difficult to treat conditions such as pain, posttraumatic stress disorder, Gulf War Illness, and Alzheimer’s disease. Participants in his studies often have more than one condition such as chronic pain and Alzheimer’s disease.
