Adam Gifford, Ph.D.

Postdoctoral Researcher

Department of Neurological Surgery

220 Abraham Flexner Way

Dr. Adam Gifford received his PhD in neuroscience from the University of Pennsylvania in 2016. His doctoral thesis focused on understanding the relations between neural oscillatory activity and the spectrotemporal regularities in acoustic stimuli known to be important for identifying and distinguishing between distinct sounds. Additionally, he studied how humans utilize learned prior information to categorize novel auditory stimuli.

In the Department of Neurological Surgery, Dr. Gifford is completing his postdoctoral training in neuropsychology and neurophysiology. His research is focused on studying the cognitive and neural mechanisms involved in the control of movements during conflict - including assessing how these systems break down in neurodegenerative diseases compared to healthy aging adults - using statistical analyses of neural activity and computational modeling.
