Ted Barrios, PhD

Research Associate


Dr. Ted Allaire Barrios is a postdoctoral fellow in PM&R at the University of Michigan (U-M), within the APPCN neuropsychology training program – Dr. Barrios identifies as a clinician-scientist with interests that bridge the gap between the science and practice of rehabilitation.

As a clinician, he specializes in the neuropsychological assessment and non-pharmacologic treatment of patients living with chronic health conditions, particularly brain and spinal cord injuries. He has a specific interest in the application of third-wave behavior therapies, including acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), across rehabilitation populations and settings. In terms of research, he is particularly interested in patient-reported and neuropsychological outcomes, with emphasis on how best to measure and intervene upon constructs of interest.

Dr. Barrios has previously served as principal investigator of multiple foundation and federally funded studies of long-term outcomes after burn, brain, and spinal cord injury. In addition to his clinical responsibilities, he is currently a co-investigator within the U-M Spinal Cord Injury Model System.
