She received her PhD from the Department of Psychology, Harvard University in 2006. Her work focuses on the functional and neural architecture associated with semantic memory and language, tackling how the human brain represents and understands the meanings of words, objects and actions, and how such knowledge is acquired and interacts with sensory and language experiences. She mainly studies human models, including typically developed individuals and special populations such as congenitally blind, deaf, or patients with brain damage, using cognitive, neuropsychological, neuroimaging and computational methods. She also works with collaborators to study these questions from the comparative (nonhuman primates) and developmental (human infants) perspectives.

  4. Christian Büchel

    University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf, Germany

    Christian Büchel is a member of the Hamburg Center for Neuroscience in Hamburg, where he is also the Director of the Department for Systems Neuroscience at Hamburg University Medical Center. He holds an Affiliate Professor appointment in the Psychology department at the University of Hamburg. After Medical School at the University of Heidelberg, he performed postdoctoral research with Karl Friston as a Wellcome Research Fellow at the Wellcome Department of Imaging Neuroscience at UCL in London with a focus on effective connectivity.

    Establishing his lab in Hamburg, he focused on the cognitive neuroscience of pain and motivation and initially studied decision making with an emphasis on delay discounting. In a parallel stream of projects he observed that the pain modulation underlying placebo analgesia can already be observed at the spinal cord level, a finding which he later also established for nocebo hyperalgesia. He is part of the IMAGEN study and during his time at Stanford he identified hypoactivation of reward circuits as a potential risk factor for addiction.

  5. Albert Cardona

    University of Cambridge, United Kingdom

    Albert Cardona is a programme leader at the MRC LMB and a professor of neuroscience at the University of Cambridge, UK. Formerly a group leader at HHMI Janelia and at the Institute of Neuroinformatics in Zurich. Trained in biology with emphasis in genetics, development and evolution, a passion and need for image processing of bioimagery led to co-founding the Fiji open source software, as well as the TrakEM2 and CATMAID softwares for image registration, segmentation, visualization and the

    analysis of neural circuits. His laboratory studies how the structure of a neural circuit relates to its function. Albert's core expertise is in reconstructing neuronal anatomy and synaptic circuits – the connectome – of small animal brains using volume electron microscopy, to then analyse the circuit architecture and formulate computational models of circuit function that capture the neural dynamics and explain how circuits implement behaviour.

    New York University, United States

    Claude Desplan, DSc, PhD is a Silver Professor of Biology and Neuroscience at NYU and an Affiliate Professor at the CGSB at NYU in Abu Dhabi. Dr. Desplan was born in Algeria and was trained at the Ecole Normale Supérieure in St. Cloud, France. He received his DSc at INSERM in Paris in 1983 working with M.S. Moukhtar and M. Thomasset on calcium regulation. He joined Pat O’Farrell at UCSF as a postdoc where he demonstrated that the homeodomain, a conserved signature of many developmental genes, is a DNA binding motif. In 1987, he joined the Faculty of Rockefeller University as an HHMI Assistant/Associate Investigator to pursue structural studies of the homeodomain and the evolution of axis formation.

    In 1999, Dr. Desplan joined NYU where he investigates the generation of neural diversity using the Drosophila visual system. His team has described the molecular mechanisms that pattern the eye and showed how stochastic decisions contribute to the diversification of photoreceptors. It also investigates the development and function of the optic lobes where neuronal diversity is generated by spatio-temporal patterning of neuroblasts, a mechanism that also applies to cortical development in mammals. Recently, his lab has also provided a functional understanding of the neuronal and computational mechanisms underlying motion detection.

    His laboratory also uses ‘evo-devo’ approaches to understand the mechanisms by which sensory systems adapt to different ecological conditions, from flies to ants to butterflies.

    Dr. Desplan serves on multiple scientific advisory boards and committees for funding agencies. He is an elected member of the AAAS, of EMBO, the New York Academy of Sciences as well as the US National Academy of Sciences.

  21. Lois Smith

    Harvard Medical School, Children's Hospital Boston, United States

    Lois EH Smith MD, PhD is an ophthalmologist and clinician/scientist at Boston Children’s Hospital and Professor of Ophthalmology at Harvard Medical School. Her basic research work is in retinal neovascularization, both basic mechanism and treatment including diabetic retinopathy, retinopathy of prematurity, age-related macular degeneration and retinitis pigmentosa.

    She has a long standing interest in eye diseases particularly retinopathy of prematurity, diabetic retinopathy, and AMD and in the mechanisms behind these diseases, particularly the underlying causes of neovascularization and the interactions between neurons and vessels. Many pathways that they have found have been translated into clinical trials, including replacement of IGF-1 in preterm infants and treatment of AMD with anti-VEGF antibodies in which they were the first to show the benefit of blocking VEGF in a mouse model of retinopathy. More recently Dr Smith's work has been interested in metabolic function in photoreceptors, particularly with respect to lipids. Photoreceptor metabolic dysfunction causes central vision loss in retinal degenerative diseases (including ROP) but is also implicated in age-related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.

    Dr Smith is the recipient of the Friedenwald award, the Alcon Research Institute award, the Silverman award, and the Bressler Prize.

  24. K VijayRaghavan

    K VijayRaghavan

    National Centre for Biological Sciences, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, India

    Vijay’s research aims to understand motor- and olfactory- circuit assembly: from deciphering how each component is made, interacts, and stabilises into functioning in the animal to allow behaviour in the real world. Related to the development of network function is its maintenance in the mature animal; another aspect of the work in the laboratory addresses how mature neurons and muscles are maintained. The laboratory uses a genetic approach, mainly using the fruit fly but also collaborating with those using mouse and cell-culture. VijayRaghavan is Secretary to the Government of India in the Ministry of Science and Technology in the Department of Biotechnology. He temporarily holds additional charge of the Department of Biotechnology. VijayRaghavan’s research continues at the National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS) of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR) in Bangalore, India, where he is Distinguished Professor. He studied engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur. His doctoral work was at TIFR, Mumbai and postdoctoral work at the California Institute of Technology. VijayRaghavan is a Fellow of the Royal Society, a Foreign Associate of the US National Academy of Sciences and a Foreign Associate of the European Molecular Biology Organization.

  25. Kate Wassum

    University of California, Los Angeles, United States

    Kate is an Associate Professor of Behavioral Neuroscience in the Psychology Department at UCLA. Her research focuses on the neural signals and circuits underlying appetitive associative learning, motivated behavior, and decision making and how dysfunction in these mechanisms can produce the maladaptive behavior underlying mental illness. Her lab uses multidisciplinary approach, combining behavioral procedures rooted in the rich traditions of learning theory with advanced systems neuroscience and molecular methods.
