About Jessica N Kraft

Jessica Kraft is a third year doctoral student at the University of Florida, in the Department of Neuroscience, under the mentorship of Dr. Adam Woods. She graduated from Penn State University, Harrisburg with her M.A. degree in Applied Psychological Research. Jessica’s research interests include using multi-modal imaging to assess structural and functional neural correlates of cognition. Her most recent project has investigated the role of functional neural correlates of the Double Decision task, a task that has proved efficacious in slowing cognitive declines in older adults. her dissertation work focuses on non-invasive brain stimulation techniques, such as tDCS on improving cognition in older adults.
