Dr. Blackmon joined the NYU Comprehensive Epilepsy Center as an Assistant Professor in 2013. She researches brain malformations, seizures, and cognition using quantitative MRI methods and standard neuropsychological testing. Her work has shed light on the relationship between malformations of cortical development and cognition, as well as the neurobiological basis for anxiety symptoms in temporal lobe epilepsy, and the relationship between autism and epilepsy. She has established a large registry of patients that completed epilepsy surgery to learn more about how surgery impacts quality-of-life. Dr. Blackmon completed her Ph.D. at the New School for Social Research in New York and her Postdoctoral Fellowship in Clinical Neuropsychology at the NYU Comprehensive Epilepsy Center.
