About the Editors

Editor-in-Chief

Professor Pankaj Sah
Director, Queensland Brain Institute
The University of Queensland
Queensland, Australia

 

Pankaj Sah is renowned for his work in understanding the neural circuitry of the amygdala, an area of the brain that plays a central role in learning and memory formation. Dysfunction of the amygdala leads to a host of anxiety-related disorders. Professor Sah’s laboratory uses a combination of molecular tools, electrophysiology, anatomical reconstruction, calcium imaging and behavioural studies. Recently, his laboratory has been working with patients undergoing electrode implantation for deep brain stimulation, which is used to treat a variety of disorders such as Parkinson's disease, Tourette's syndrome and essential tremor. His group studies the electrophysiological signatures of different brain regions and their impact on disease.

Dr. Gregory Quirk
School of Medicine
University of Puerto Rico
Puerto Rico

 

Gregory Quirk's laboratory aims to increase understanding of how the brain overcomes fear, train effective scientific thinkers and increase neuroscience practice in historically underrepresented countries.

Prof. Nienke van Atteveldt
Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam
Amsterdam, The Netherlands

 

 

Nienke van Atteveldt currently works as associate professor at the Vrije Universiteit (VU Amsterdam) leading a research group to investigate underlying mechanisms of motivation and resilience in high school students (supported by an ERC Starting Grant). Specifically, her lab investigates the developmental interplay between students’ academic self‐concept, their functional brain networks for error and feedback processing, and their learning trajectories and well‐being in school.
