Research interests:

Dr. Deana Davalos coordinates an active research laboratory investigating temporal processing, aspects of cognitive aging, developmental neurophysiology, and cognitive processes in clinical populations. One line of research focuses on understanding the development of time processing abilities over the life-span. In particular, is there a relationship between one’s ability to process time accurately and higher order cognitive skills such as planning, sequencing, and executive functioning? Dr. Davalos also studies time processing in clinical populations. Her research involves behavioral testing, EEG/ERP, and neuropsychological testing. Dr. Davalos maintains active collaborations with the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, and the Center for Neurorehabilitiation Services. 


What I think of the idea behind WebmedCentral:

I believe that the approach of quick publication with post publication peer review allows for novel findings to be disseminated more quickly and the fact that services are free for authors as well as for readers allows for a greater audience.
