Dr. Rebecca A. Lundwall, PhD

I am a researcher interested in contributing to basic knowledge in psychological science. This includes research that I hope will one day prove useful for improving the lives of individuals at risk for attentional and social deficits.

I joined the faculty at Brigham Young University as an Assistant Professor of Psychology in 2013 and established the Development of Visual Cognition Lab. Research in my lab focuses on understanding genetic and environmental influences on the development of visual attention in infants, children, adolescents, and young adults.

I have worked on research projects at Brigham Young University, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Rice University, the University of Houston-Clear Lake, the Houston VA Medical Center (HCQCUS), and the University of Houston.

I received my PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience from Rice University (Houston, Texas) in 2013. My previous studies have included genetic studies with adults and a study following up on children who were tested on reflexive attention as infants. The follow-up study added a genetic component not previously examined.
