Jayme McReynolds

Jayme Rose McReynolds

Assistant Professor

Professional Summary

Dr. McReynolds received her PhD in Cognition & Neuroscience from the University of Texas at Dallas in 2012 under the mentorship of Dr. Christa McIntyre. She then completed her postdoctoral training with Dr. John Mantsch in the Department of Biomedical Sciences at Marquette University before being promoted to Research Assistant Professor in 2018. She is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Pharmacology and Systems Physiology at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. Research in her laboratory focuses on the neurobiological mechanisms that underlie the influence of stress on the brain, addictive behavior, and cognitive processes in rodents.
