Patricia Heyn

Associate professor in University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, USA


Patricia C. Heyn is an Associate Professor at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus since 2004.  She earned a PhD in Exercise Physiology/Gerontology from the University of Central Florida followed by two Post-Doctoral Fellowships.  The first in 2004 on Cognitive/Neurological Rehabilitation supported by the National Institute of Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR) at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, mentored by Dr. Kenneth Ottenbacher, she studied the effects of physical and cognitive-behavioral therapies on individuals with brain injuries as well as on Alzheimer's disease and related disorders.  Her investigations include the associations between lifestyle behavior, sex hormone, diabetes and interactive technology on cognitive function.  During the second Fellowship in 2006 on Geriatric Medicine Research supported by the National Institute on Aging (NIH), she studied the associations between mild cognitive impairment (MCI), ethnicity, age, education, physical activity levels and metabolic syndrome as well as designing clinical trials for hypogonadal older men and trials for older individuals with metabolic syndrome and MCI. She has important relevant research expertise in activity-induced brain function and lifestyle behavior medicine.  Throughout her career developments, Dr. Heyn also studied the effects of a multi-sensory therapy and virtual-reality intervention on cognitive and physiological function on TBI and stroke.  Her current research interests include developing and evaluating interactive technologies for cognitive and physical rehabilitation and investigating the effects of behavioral interventions (with/out pharmacological/complementary and alternative medicine) on cognitive function, mood, behavior and brain imaging.  She is constantly designing behavioral treatments for disabling and cognitive disorders.  She has been involved in several international academic programs and scientific projects.  On December of 2006, her research was featured in one of Argentina's leading newspapers, La Nación, after she delivered a keynote lecture at the 6th Neuropsychological Argentinean Congress.  The National Alzheimer's Association features Dr. Heyn's research on the effects of exercise on dementia on its Maintain Your Brain ™ - the Science Behind the Recommendations website.  Her research is also frequently cited in various media such as View of Washington, ABC 7 News and other local and scientific news reports.
