Dr. Price received her BA in Psychology/Criminology (2010) and MS in Applied Cognitive Neuroscience (2013) from the University of Texas at Dallas. She then began her work in addiction research at the University of Texas Southwestern (UTSW) Medical Center where she studied the neuropharmacologic and neuroendocrine underpinnings of alcohol and substance use disorders as well compulsive behaviors. Dr. Price completed her Ph.D. in Psychology/Behavioral Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Florida under the mentorship of Dr. Sara Jo Nixon. Her, she shifted focus towards research methodology and neurocognitive function. Now a research fellow in the Neurocardiac Lab, she is integrating her work on cognition, stress, and endocrinology, with the study of cardiovascular function, baroreflex feedback, and the brain-body link to continue her work on alcohol and substance use disorders.
