John Gabrieli

John D. E. Gabrieli, Ph.D is Professor of Psychology in the Neurosciences Program, and in Radiology at Stanford University . He received a bachelor's degree in English from Yale University (1978), a doctorate in behavioral neuroscience from the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (1987), and was a postdoctoral fellow in the psychology department at Harvard University . His area of research is human cognitive neuroscience in which he studies the brain basis of memory, language, and thought. His research examines both normal brain functions and diseases of those functions that occur in Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, stroke, epilepsy, dyslexia, and attention deficit disorder. He also studies how changes in brain functions affect the growth of mental abilities in children and the decline of some abilities in normal aging. In the past five years, he has focused his research on the use of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to visualize the neural basis of mental operations. He is the senior author of over 100 papers published in peer-reviewed scientific journals, including such leading journals as Science and Nature. In 1996 he received the American Psychological Association Division 40 Robert A. and Phyllis Levitt Early Career Award in Neuropsychology.
