PhD, Université catholique de Louvain



Dr. Verfaellie is a Professor of Psychiatry and Director of the BU Memory Disorders Research Center. She is also a Research Career Scientist at VA Boston Healthcare System. Dr. Verfaellie received her Ph.D. in psychology from the University of Leuven (Belgium) in 1986, and following several years of predoctoral research training at the University of Florida, completed postdoctoral training at VA Boston Healthcare System/Boston University School of Medicine.

Dr. Verfaellie's research aims to elucidate the cognitive and neural bases of various forms of human memory, through the study of patients with memory disorders as well as individuals with intact memory. In addition to the study of patients with selective amnesia, her current research extends to other clinical populations in whom memory impairment is one of the presenting complaints, such as individuals who suffered cardiac arrest or traumatic brain injury. Her research is funded through the National Institutes of Health and the Department of Veterans Affairs. Dr. Verfaellie is a fellow of the American Psychological Association and the Association for Psychological Science. She serves on the editorial board of several journals, including Neuropsychology, Neuropsychologia, and Journal of Memory and Language.
