Elizabeth "Sally" Condor, Ph.D
Neuropsychology across the age span
Dr. Conder became interested in neuropsychology in 1979 while working at the Veterans’ Hospital in Dallas, Texas. It appealed to her long history of interest in physiological psychology (the area she received her Master’s degree in) and brain function in humans. In 1980, she accompanied one of the neuropsychologists she worked with to a neuropsychology conference and began assessing veterans, beginning her career in neuropsychology. In 1982, she returned to UNC – Greensboro to begin work on her Ph.D. in psychology. Since her emphasis was in clinical neuropsychology, she welcomed the chance in 1983 to work with Dr. Frank Wood, who was the head of the Section of Neuropsychology of the Dept. of Neurology at what was then Bowman Gray School of Medicine. While in school, she continued working with Dr. Wood and the other neuropsychologists at Bowman Gray until 1989, seeing infants from 6 months of age to elderly adults to age 89.
