Brady Reynolds

* Jointly with Pediatrics

Dr. Reynolds is a developmental psychologist with research interests in the assessment of different dimensions of impulsive behavior, primarily through the use of laboratory behavioral tasks, and how impulsive behavior is related to cigarette-smoking uptake and cessation among adolescents. His interests also include the development and evaluation of contingency management smoking-cessation programs oriented to adolescent populations.
