Professor Mike Kisley teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience for the UCCS Psychology Department. He was selected in 2011 for the campus-wide UCCS Outstanding Teaching Award. Dr. Kisley directs the UCCS Human Neurophysiology Laboratory, and his research program is supported by funding from the National Institute on Aging. In addition to serving the Psychology Department and its graduate students as the Director of Graduate Training and as the Faculty Coordinator for the M.A. Program in Psychological Science, Dr. Kisley serves the scientific community as an Associate Editor for the Journal of Integrative Neuroscience.
Professor Kisley joined the UCCS Psychology Department after a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Colorado at Denver, and a simultaneous appointment to the Veteran's Affairs Medical Center. He earned a Ph.D. in Neuroscience from the University of Pennsylvania in May of 2000, and Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 1992 and 1994 respectively.
Dr. Kisley's research interests are broad but most recently have centered around the study of emotion and attention functions across the lifespan, and particularly the interaction of these important psychological functions. Dr. Kisley and his students employ both behavioral and neuroscience methodologies to study these issues.
