Jessica Bernard's Portrait

Jessica Bernard

Assistant Professor of Psychological and Brain Sciences

College of Liberal Arts


Bernard’s work seeks to understand how the cerebellum contributes to both motor and cognitive behavior and how it changes with age. Regarding COVID-19, she can discuss the impact of social distancing on the elderly, and how this may be a particularly hard time for older adults. Further, discussions of less activity and engagement both physical and mental could result from time spent isolated either due to quarantine or social distancing.
