John Morrison, PhD
John Morrison is the Director of the California National Primate Research Center and Professor of Neurology at the School of Medicine at UC Davis. His research focuses on age-related neurodegenerative diseases as well as in the memory impairments that often occur during normal aging.
Deeply committed to the public communication of neuroscience, Dr. Morrison was a member of the BrainFacts.org Advisory Board, which helped guide the development of BrainFacts.org from its inception, prior to becoming Editor-in-Chief. Throughout his career, he has also been committed to training the next generation of scientists, both at the individual and programmatic level.
Christophe Bernard, PhD
Christophe Bernard is the PhysioNet team leader in at the Institute of Neuroscience Systems at the French Institute of Health and Medical Research (INSERM). His research focuses on understanding how physiological and pathological behaviors emerge from the organization and reorganization of the underlying neuronal architecture, with an emphasis on epilepsy. He currently serves as the inaugural editor-in-chief of eNeuro, SfN’s open-access, online, scientific journal, which is committed to rigorous scientific practices, including publishing negative results and studies that fail to reproduce prior work, as well as transparent manuscript review processes.
Patrick Hof, MD
Dr. Patrick Hof is the Irving and Dorothy Regenstreif Research Professor of Neuroscience and the vice chair of the Fishberg Department of Neuroscience at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York. He studies the selective neuronal vulnerability in dementing illness and aging and uses quantitative, high-resolution, morphologic methods to determine the cellular features that render the human brain uniquely vulnerable to degenerative disorders. Hof’s laboratory has established an international reputation in quantitative approaches to neuroanatomy and studies of brain evolution, and he currently serves as the editor-in-chief of the Journal of Comparative Neurology.
