John D. E. Gabrieli, Ph.D
is Professor of Psychology in the Neurosciences Program, and in Radiology at
. He received a bachelor's degree in English from
(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
. 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
