Jennifer (Jen) McDermott works with Graduate Students and Postdoctoral Scholars and collaborates with the Assistant Dean for Inclusion and Engagement in the Graduate School to promote the CNS vision for diversity and inclusion. As a professor of Psychological and Brain Sciences at UMass Amherst, Dr. McDermott's research bridges developmental, cognitive, and affective neuroscience. She uses this combined perspective to explore individual differences and the role of early experience in relation to cognitive development and social outcomes.
