Postdoctoral Neuropsychology Fellow, UCSF Memory and Aging Center, Department of Neurology, Weill Institute for Neurosciences, University of California, San Francisco, San Francisco, California

Breton Asken, PhD, ATC, is a postdoctoral neuropsychology fellow at the UCSF Memory and Aging Center in the Department of Neurology. He graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2013 with bachelor’s degrees in Psychology and Exercise & Sport Science – Athletic Training. He then completed his PhD degree in Clinical Psychology (Neuropsychology) at the University of Florida in 2019, which included a clinical internship at the Brown University Clinical Psychology Internship Training Program.

Breton researches clinico-pathological variability in patients with neurodegenerative disease. He has specific interests in the intersection of lifetime head trauma exposure and Alzheimer’s disease and related causes of dementia, like chronic traumatic encephalopathy. His work uses fluid biomarkers, neuroimaging, and neuropsychological testing to evaluate how head trauma contributes to mixed etiology dementia and influences the cognitive and behavioral phenotypes of neurodegenerative disease(s). Breton is completing his fellowship in Summer 2022 and will start as an Assistant Professor at the University of Florida in the Department of Clinical and Health Psychology in Fall 2022.
