Jamie Reed, PhD, earned her PhD in in neuroscience from Vanderbilt University. She also completed a postdoctoral research fellowship at Vanderbilt University, where she was awarded the Craig H. Neilson Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship and the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation Research Award. Prior to joining the department of Radiology in 2020, she was a member of the research faculty for the department of Psychology at Vanderbilt University. Dr. Reed studies neural plasticity of the brain and spinal cord, with focus on sensorimotor and pain processing and neural mechanisms of recoveries after spinal cord injury. She is a member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, Association for Psychological Science, and the Society for Neuroscience.
