21. marts 2018: Valuing self and valuing others - insights from neuroscience
Ray Dolan Born 21 January 1954 in the Republic of Ireland, he studied medicine at University College Galway, National University of Ireland. He completed a specialist training in psychiatry in UK (1979 – 1986). In 1987 he was appointed consultant neuropsychiatrist to the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square. In 1994 he joined the Institute of Neurology, University College London. Since 1999 he has held the Mary Kinross Chair in Neuropsychiatry, at UCL. In 2006, he became founding Director of the Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging, at UCL. Between 2010 and 2014 he was visiting Einstein Fellow to the Humboldt University Berlin.
Since 2014 he has been Director of a UCL-Max Planck Centre for Computational Psychiatry and Ageing Research.
Ray Dolan’s research is concerned with how we learn about reward and punishment, and how reward and punishment impact on our subjective emotional state and on decision making.
Using insights from this work he addresses how processing of reward and punishment breaks down in the context of psychiatric disorder. He uses a range of research approaches including functional neuroimaging, computational analysis of behaviour and psychopharmacological manipulations.
