Dr. Reilly is an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine. He is trained as a clinical neuropsychologist and cognitive neuroscience researcher. As the Director of the Outpatient Neuropsychology Clinic in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Northwestern, he conducts clinical neuropsychological assessments with a wide variety of patients with psychiatric, neurologic, and medical conditions. Of specific relevance to the current application, he conducts clinical neuropsychological evaluations to Northwestern University student athletes who have sustained concussions and provides consultation to the Northwestern University Athletics Department on the baseline and post-injury ImPACT screening assessments administered to all varsity student athletes. His research focuses on neurocognitive and neurophysiologic processes in healthy individuals and those with, or at risk for, neuropsychiatric disorders or acquired conditions such as mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). In particular, his uses standardized neuropsychological and cognitive neuroscience paradigms to evaluate attention, working memory, executive functions, and sensorimotor processes in the laboratory and MRI settings, and how these processes and underlying brain structure and function are altered in the context of illness or injury.
