Daniel Schacter

Daniel Schacter

Daniel L. Schacter is William R. Kenan, Jr. Professor of Psychology at Harvard University. Dr. Schacter’s research explores the relation between conscious and unconscious forms of memory, the nature of memory distortions, how individuals use memory to imagine possible future events, enhancement of online learning, as well as the effects of aging on memory.


Nora Volkow

Nora Volkow

Nora D. Volkow is the Director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) at the National Institutes of Health. Dr. Volkow’s work has been instrumental in demonstrating that drug addiction is a disease of the human brain. As a research psychiatrist and scientist, Dr. Volkow pioneered the use of brain imaging to investigate the toxic effects and addictive properties of abusable drugs. Her studies have documented changes in the dopamine system affecting, among others, the functions of frontal brain regions involved with motivation, drive, and pleasure in addiction. She has also made important contributions to the neurobiology of obesity, ADHD, and aging.


Gary Glover

Gary Glover

Gary H. Glover is Professor of Radiology and, by courtesy, of Psychology and of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. Dr. Glover’s research encompasses the physics and mathematics of imaging with Magnetic Resonance (MR). His research explores rapid MRI scanning methods using spiral and other non-Cartesian k-space trajectories for dynamic imaging of function. He has developed MRI pulse sequences and processing methods for mapping cortical brain function by imaging the metabolic response to various stimuli, with applications in the basic neurosciences as well as for clinical applications.
