Research Interests

Dr. Suhr’s area of specialty is clinical neuropsychology, which she views as an integration of clinical psychology and neuroscience, or as her students put it “keeping the psychology in neuropsychology.” Her research reflects this integration, and the importance of a good understanding of psychology in order to understand neuroscience.

One major topic of current research interest is the effect of psychological (non-neurological) variables on neuropsychological performance. Some of the psychological variables addressed in the laboratory include malingering, premorbid expectations for performance “diagnosis threat,” depression, and anxiety. Their effects on neuropsychological performance have been examined both in cognitively impaired persons (such as patients with dementia or head injury), in those who are neurologically normal but report cognitive problems (such as persons with chronic pain or students who suspect they have ADHD), or in those who may be worried about future cognitive decline (such as in the fear of Alzheimer’s seen in family members of patients with Alzheimer’s disease).

Another major topic of current research interest is consideration of personality and other premorbid factors on executive functioning in individuals with various neurological conditions, including substance abusers or individuals with head injury.

Dr. Suhr also has examined the neuropsychological aspects of various health factors such as hypertension (with Dr. France), dehydration, stress/cortisol reactivity (with Dr. Zoccola), pain, and sleep.

Since 1997, Dr. Suhr’s lab has conducted free cognitive screening for older adults in the local community, and this has led to several interesting research projects related to distinguishing age-related cognitive changes from early signs of dementia and the relationship of aging-related cognitive changes to real world outcomes such as driving. She is an active member of the Ohio University Collaborative on Aging. She also conducts ageing-related research with Dr. Brian Clarke at OMNI. Some labs utilize a neuroimaging technique, Near Infrared Spectroscopy, to measure cerebral oxygenation in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex during executive functioning tasks.

Another major topic of interest is the psychological effects of neurological disorders, such as the personality and behavioral changes that accompany damage to the frontal lobes, and the psychological and behavioral difficulties that accompany Alzheimer's disease. Dr. Suhr also has conducted research projects addressing the neuropsychological impairments seen in such neuropsychiatric conditions as schizophrenia, schizophrenic spectrum disorders, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
