Dr Rudebeck joined the department of Neuroscience at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in 2014 as an Assistant Professor. His training and background are in neuropsychology and neurophysiology. He obtained his PhD in Experimental Psychology from the University of Oxford, where he investigated the role of the prefrontal cortex in emotion, social behavior and decision-making. Prior to joining the faculty at Mount Sinai, Dr Rudebeck was a Research Fellow at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), in Bethesda, Maryland. While at the NIMH, his research focused on how interaction between the prefrontal cortex and other parts of the brain, such as the amygdala, contributes to emotion and cognition. At the Icahn School of Medicine, Dr Rudebeck’s lab will investigate the neural systems involved in emotion and decision-making using a combination of behavioral, neurophysiology and interference techniques.
