Deborah Budding, Ph.D, is a board certified neuropsychologist practicing in Southern California who works with children, adolescents, and adults.  She has a background in literature and magazine publishing prior to earning a Ph.D in psychology. She is co-author of "Subcortical Structures and Cognition: Implications for Neuropsychological Assessment," which was published in 2008, as well as multiple book chapters and peer-reviewed articles. She co-authored a consensus paper about the cerebellum's role in both movement and cognition, which was published in 2013.  She has a strong interest in neuroscience, art, and video games, not necessarily in that order.  Dr. Budding is a supervising faculty member at Harbor-UCLA's neuropsychology training program and is involved in research involving transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). She has particular interest in the cerebellum's contributions to non-motor function, in brain-behavior relationships in neurodevelopmental disorders, and in finding ways to amplify the voices of women and persons of color.
