John Young

Assistant Clinical Research Coordinator

Clayton was introduced to research during his time at UC Davis, where he obtained his BS degree in psychology (biology emphasis). As an undergraduate, he assisted in investigating attention, visual working memory and language processing using EEG/ERPs and eye-tracking. Upon graduating, he gained clinical experience as a psychometrist in a private neuropsychology practice, which led to his interest in working with aging populations. After a short stint away from research, he excitedly joined the UCSF Decision Lab to examine Decision-Making in Alzheimer’s and Related Dementias, as well as Genes, Brains and Decisions, where he hopes to help understand the decision making processes in clinical populations.
