Dr. Christopher Abeare, Ph.D.

I earned my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology, with a specialization in Clinical Neuropsychology and a minor in cognitive neuroscience, from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan under the supervision of Douglas Whitman, Ph.D..

I completed my Clinical internship at the Ann Arbor VA hospital. Since then, I have been a Professor (currently Associate) in the Clinical Neuropsychology track at the University of Windsor. I am also a faculty member in the Behaviour, Cognition and Neuroscience (BCN) program and Co-Director of the Sport-Related Concussion Centre at the University of Windsor.

I am a faculty member of the University of Windsor Clinical Neuropsychology Program, one of the oldest programs in North America. Founded in the late 1960s/early 70s, the first Clinical Neuropsychology Ph.D. graduated in 1972. The University of Windsor’s program has trained a significant proportion of the Clinical Neuropsychologists in Canada, many of whom are leaders in the Neuropsychology community on Canada and beyond.
