Andrea Vincent

Associate Research Professor, College of Arts & Sciences; Director, Cognitive Science Research Center (CBN Associate) 350 David L Boren Blvd, Ste. 1910 405-325-7467 Ph.D., Quantitative Psychology - University of Oklahoma, 2002


Dr. Andrea Vincent is the Director of the Cognitive Science Research Center at OU and an Associate Research Professor in the OU College of Arts & Sciences. Much of Dr. Vincent’s work has been focused on the identification of risk factors that degrade, enhance or extend cognitive performance capabilities; computerized cognitive test development; measurement of individual differences in cognitive performance; cognitive testing in military environments; identification of individual differences in stress reactivity in relation to emotion states and health; cognitive, behavioral, and physiological risk factors for alcoholism; early life adverse experiences and cognitive and physiological outcomes; and the role of coated-platelets in the pathophysiology of both stroke and Alzheimer’s Disease. She holds a Ph.D. in Quantitative Psychology and has over 18 years of experience in psychometric theory, experimental design and advanced statistical analysis. She has over 80 peer reviewed publications, and has assisted in commercialization of products and technology for neurocognitive testing. Agencies funding her research include DoD-Army Medical Research Acquisition Activity, DoD-U.S. Army Research Institute for Environmental Management, Oklahoma Center for the Advancement of Science and Technology, National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, and the US Department of Veteran’s Affairs.
