Biography

 Robyn Honea is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Neurology at the University of Kansas Medical Center. She is also a member of the Alzheimer's Disease Clinical Research Program, the Center for Health Behavior Neuroscience, and collaborates with the Hoglund Brain Imaging Center.

A native Texan, Dr. Honea graduated from Vanderbilt University and then worked under a predoctoral training award in the Clinical Brain Disorders Branch at the National Institutes of Mental Health (NIMH) in Washington DC, focusing in brain imaging. She did her doctoral work at the University of Oxford in England in the department of Experimental Psychology, doing work with imaging genetics of mental illness. She also continued research at the NIMH in Washington, D.C. as part of the Graduate Partnerships Program Award. The focus of her thesis was on using Voxel-Based Morphometry (VBM), Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI), and Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) to investigate structural and functional abnormalities associated with the genetics of mental illness. Dr. Honea completed a two year post doctoral fellowship in Neurology and Alzheimer's disease at the Alzheimer's and Memory Program here at KUMC, under Jeffrey Burns, M.D. Dr. Honea's memberships include the Society for Neuroscience, Organization for Human Brain Mapping, Association for Women in Science, American Society for Human Genetics, and KUMC Women in Medicine and Science. She has served as an executive board member for the Alzheimer's Association, Heart of America Chapter, and as an Associate Editor for the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease.
Research Interest

 Dr. Honea's research focus is on using various brain imaging modalities to understand more about genetic risk for brain disease, as well as characterizing healthy brain aging. She is involved in a variety of research involving neuroimaging in aging and Alzheimer's Disease, including the study of new neuroimaging markers of risk for Alzheimer's Disease with the Alzheimer and Memory Program, lead by Dr. Jeffrey Burns. She also leads a study on neuroimaging in Parkinson's Disease and Parkinson's Disease Dementia, collaborating with KUMC Parkinson's Disease Center. Her current interests also include using brain imaging to study the underlying neural mechanisms and role of genetics in obesity. This is part of her collaborative work with the Center for Health Behavior Neuroscience, Directed by Cary Savage, PhD.
