Frontiers in Neuroscience Research

Dr. Read Montague's work centers broadly on human social cognition, decision-making, and willful choice with a goal of understanding the computational and neurobiological basis of these functions in health and disease. Montague's work particularly focuses on computational neuroscience - the connection between physical mechanisms present in real neural tissue and the computational functions that these mechanisms embody. His laboratory uses theoretical, computational, and experimental approaches to these issues. His group now employs novel approaches to functional neuroimaging, new biomarkers for mental disease, spectroscopy, real-time voltammetry, and computational simulations. Montague also directs the Roanoke Brain Study (RBS), a project aimed at understanding decision-making through the lifespan and its relationship to brain development, function, and disease.

Montague earned his PhD in Biophysics from the University of Alabama Birmingham. He then held two postdoctoral fellowships at the Salk Institute and Rockefeller University. In addition to his impressive collection of degrees, his work has been published in a wide variety of notable scientific and academic publications and journals.

Speaker: Read Montague, Director of the Human Neuroimaging Lab and Computational Psychiatry Unit at the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute.
