Jacqueline Gottlieb studies the mechanisms that underlie the brain's higher cognitive functions, including decision making, memory, and attention. Her interest is in how the brain gathers the evidence it needs, and ignores what it doesn’t, during everyday tasks and during special states such as curiosity. Her research could offer insight into disorders that involve deficits of attention, such as attention deficit disorder, depression, and drug addiction.

Jacqueline Gottlieb, Professor of Neuroscience, Columbia University; Principal Investigator, Zuckerman Institute

Growing Up in Science is a seminar series initiated at NYU by Drs. Wei Ji Ma and Cristina Alberini in 2014. The speakers of this series do not talk about their science; they talk about the human side of becoming and being a scientist. They share their successes as well as the struggles, weaknesses, detours, and failures.

This seminar is part of the Growing Up in Science seminar series, organized by the Zuckerman Institute and the Columbia University Postdoctoral Society. For questions about this or future seminars, please contact series organizers Bianca Jones MarlinChiara Bertipaglia, or Rainer Engelken.
