Dawn Neumann, PhD December 21st, 2011

Dawn Neumann, PhD, has her M.A. in Psychology from Rutgers, NJ and a Ph.D. in Rehabilitation Science from the University at Buffalo, SUNY. She is currently Assistant Research Faculty at IU School of Medicine in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and Clinical Research Faculty at Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana. Dr. Neumann’s research primarily focuses on understanding and treating a variety of emotional processing and regulation problems after brain injury (BI). She is particularly interested in studying: 1) reasons why people with BI have difficulty recognizing how other people feel, and ways to better treat these deficits; 2) if and how anger/ aggression after BI might be influenced by impaired emotion recognition and misinterpretation of others’ behavior; 3) deficits generating emotions, emotional self-awareness, and understanding ones’ own emotions; 4) connections between emotion processing deficits, empathy, and interpersonal relationships; and 5) emotion and communication treatments to improve marital relationships after BI. Dr. Neumann has recently been awarded with the Indiana Spinal Cord and Brain Injury Research Fund, and the Mary E. Switzer Merit Fellowship to study anger and aggression after TBI.
