Dr. Bonnie Connor…did an outstanding job recruiting and managing a group of research assistants…who worked very well together, thanks to her encouragement and warmth. She cultivated a positive work atmosphere, skillfully integrating productivity, dedication, and fun. I credit Dr. Connor as a primary mentor, whose own intellectual work inspired me to pursue a career in neuropsychology. She is one of the most capable, encouraging, and reliable people I have known.

Bonnie Connor PhD portrait

I am a CA licensed psychologist (PSY 22446) who specializes in neuropsychology. I have a PhD in Health Psychology & Behavioral Medicine with specialized training in neuropsychological rehabilitation and research. My training includes fellowships at the University of Birmingham in England, UC Berkeley, St. Mary’s Medical Center San Francisco, and the Memory & Aging Center at UCSF. My neuropsychology experience includes work in the UC Davis Medical Center Department of Neurology, Sacramento, CA and Mercy General Acute and Outpatient Rehabilitation programs.

In my clinical practice, I specialize in adult neuropsychological evaluation services for active duty military and their families, and University of California undergraduate and graduate students. The evaluations, recommendations, and education I offer are based on clinical evidence shown to be most effective for the specific needs of each patient and his or her family.

I have conducted research in normal and pathological aging funded by the British Stroke Association, National Institutes of Health, and the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research. My clinical research has focused on using computer-based brain training to improve cognitive function in a range of conditions including stroke, mild cognitive impairment, mild traumatic brain injury, and adult attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD-A).
