Kevin J. Black

I am a neuropsychiatrist who also completed a movement disorders fellowship at Washington University. My research is primarily focused on neuroimaging and dopamine, especially in people with Tourette syndrome and Parkinson disease. I have also developed methods for structural imaging volumetry, analysis of brain images in nonhuman species, pharmacological fMRI (phMRI), and statistical analysis of anatomy-function relationships in deep brain stimulation (DBS).

Mark Hallett

Chief of the Human Motor Control Section, NINDS, NIH. Former president of the Movement Disorder Society and the American Association of Electrodiagnostic Medicine. Past Editor in Chief of Clinical Neurophysiology and currently on many editorial boards. Widely published, with many honors.

Marco Iacoboni

I am a neurologist and systems neuroscientist originally from Rome. I am interested in perception-action coupling. My interest in perception-action coupling led me to the study, among other things, of mirror neurons. Mirror neurons led me to study human imitation, empathy, and more generally what is called social cognition. As a neurologist, however, I also have a strong interest in the neurobiological mechanisms of neuropsychiatric conditions and how to intervene on those mechanisms.

Joseph Jankovic

Professor of Neurology; Distinguished Chair in Movement Disorders; Director of the Parkinson Disease Center and Movement Disorders Clinic at Baylor College of Medicine. Past president of the international Movement Disorder Society. Recipient of the American Academy of Neurology Movement Disorders Research Award; Guthrie Family Humanitarian Award; Dystonia Medical Research Foundation Distinguished Service Award, and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the national Tourette Syndrome Association.

Neil W. Kowall

Professor of Neurology and Pathology and Director, Boston University Alzheimer’s Disease Center, Boston University School of Medicine; Chief Neurology and Director of the VA New England Geriatric Research Education and Clinical Center, VA Boston Healthcare System.

Corinne I. Lasmezas

The Scripps Research Institute

Corinne Lasmezas has been studying prion diseases since 1990, with respect to the mechanisms of prion replication, pathogenesis of the disease in the living organism, zoonotic potential of bovine spongiform encephalopathy and blood-borne risk, the mechanisms of neurodegeneration and therapy. Her studies now encompass the fundamental aspects of neurodegeneration common to other protein misfolding neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer, Parkinson and Huntington's diseases.
