Karl Deisseroth

Psychiatrist and neuroscientist at Stanford University.

Graduated from the biochemistry department at Harvard and received MD, PhD, medical internship and psychiatry residency training at Stanford.  Previous research included studies on the cellular and molecular underpinnings of brain physiology, and in particular, the biochemical networks which function during electrical activity in neurons to mediate memory storage.

Current research is targeted toward understanding of higher-level cognitive function, including the mechanism of generation of subjective sensation from neuronal activity. We are adapting molecular and cellular techniques to study the assembly and behavior of intact neuronal systems, using neural stem cells and novel tissue engineering techniques.
