Dr. Taylor Kuhn

Dr. Taylor Kuhn is an Assistant Research Neuroscientist in the Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences at UCLA. He is a clinical neuropsychologist with a broad interest in sciences which bridge the gap between neuropsychology and neuroimaging to investigate relationships between brain structure and function across neurodegenerative disorders, neuromedical illnesses, healthy aging, and intellectual giftedness. His experimental expertise includes structural and functional MRI, non-invasive neuromodulation techniques, machine learning analyses, and experimental as well as traditional neuropsychological approaches. He has a growing record of over 50 publications in the field of neuropsychology and neuroimaging, with an emphasis on exploring network connectivity (e.g. diffusion imaging) underlying cognitive and emotional functioning. He serves as the study coordinator for both Lifespan Human Connectome Projects at UCLA. More recently, his independent research has expanded to include neuromodulation techniques, such as transcranial focused ultrasound (tFUS), as a non-invasive method for improving cognitive performance and emotion regulation. His lab is the first to implement tFUS in humans for modulation of learning, memory, and emotional regulation and has combined tFUS with multimodal MRI to validate its ability to increase regional brain perfusion, modulate functional connectivity, and associated behavioral and psychophysiological outcomes.

Dr. Kuhn received his Doctoral Degree in Psychology from the University of Florida and completed his internship at the Boston Consortium for Clinical Psychology, with fellowships at Harvard and Boston University. He completed a postdoctoral fellowship at UCLA where he was both chief research and assistant chief clinical fellow. Dr. Kuhn also spends part of his time providing neurocognitive and psychodiagnostic assessment along with managed care to adults with a broad array of neurological and psychiatric concerns. Dr. Kuhn is the recipient of the Greiffenstein-Kaplan Research Award from the American Academy of Clinical Neuropsychology and the Phillip M. Rennick Research Award from the International Neuropsychological Society.
