Aaron Meyer completed a Ph.D. in Psychology (with a focus on Cognition and Neuroscience) at the University of Missouri, and he completed postdoctoral fellowships at the University of Illinois and Northwestern University, where he conducted research related to semantic and syntactic processing, aging, and aphasia. He is currently working on a project that examines a treatment for word-finding difficulties in primary progressive aphasia.

Kevin has conducted extensive research in the field of working memory during his time as a graduate student. Kevin has utilized techniques such as transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS), high-definition electroencephologram (HD-EEG), and eye-tracking in order to answer questions about the limits of working memory. The research has targeted both healthy young adults as well as older adults who are often at a high risk of memory decline. Kevin is now working with neuropsychological populations to study ways to ameliorate aphasia in individuals with stroke and other neuropsychological conditions.
