John Agnew, Ph. D.
John graduated from Haverford College in May 1996, with a BA in chemistry.
In 2003 he earned a Ph.D. in neuroscience from Georgetown University. He
conducted his dissertation research in the laboratory of Dr. Guinevere Eden,
using behavioral and functional neuroimaging methods to identify and
characterize the neural basis of motor control in both dyslexic and
non-dyslexic individuals. John is currently a postdoctoral researcher with
Dr. Robin Gabriels at The Children’s Hospital / The University of Colorado
at Denver and Health Sciences Center, where he is studying repetitive
behaviors associated with autism. In addition to research, he has an adjunct
faculty position at the University of Colorado at Boulder, where he teaches
biological psychology. John currently lives in Denver with his wife and two
