Brian Lau, Ph.D.
Brain and Spine Institute
*Lunch provided for in-person attendees
Brian Lau's research is aimed at understanding how neural activity within basal ganglia circuits enables us to learn and control our actions. He combines fundamental investigations in animal models with clinical investigations in patients undergoing deep brain stimulation surgery for treating movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease. Lau trained with Walter J. Freeman and Yang Dan at the University of California, Berkeley, and obtained a PhD under the supervision of Paul Glimcher at New York University (2007). He was a Helen Hay Whitney postdoctoral fellow at Columbia University where I worked with C. Daniel Salzman. Afterwards, he moved to the Brain and Spine Institute (ICM) as a visiting scholar with Etienne Hirsch. In 2012 Lau created the team “Experimental Neurosurgery” under the auspices of the ATIP-Avenir program, and was recruited by the CNRS (2013).
