Q & A - Ralph Adolphs


Ralph Adolphs is Bren Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in Pasadena, California. He obtained his Bachelor's Degree in Chemistry and Master's in Biology from Stanford University, and his PhD in neurobiology from Caltech working with Mark Konishi on the auditory system of the barn owl. His post-doc was with Antonio Damasio at the University of Iowa, where he began investigating the role of the amygdala in recognizing emotions from facial expressions in humans. His lab continues to focus on the amygdala, but also investigates autism and agenesis of the corpus callosum (a birth defect leading to partial or complete absence of the corpus callosum). He directs Caltech's Brain Imaging Center, is Deputy Editor of Psychological Science, and is current president of the Association for the Scientific Study of Consciousness.
