主讲人简介:

 Jean-Claude Dreher is the research director of the laboratory ‘Neuroeconomics, Reward and Decision Making’ at the Center for National Scientific Research (CNRS), in the ‘Institut of Cognitive Sciences’ (Lyon, France). He investigates the neural mechanisms underlying decision making, motivation and reward processing in humans, using concepts from cognitive neuroscience, psychology and behavioral economics. He uses experimental tools such as model-based functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging, intracranial electrophysiological recordings and pharmacological manipulations to understand the processes engaged in motivation and when making a choice. His goals are to understand the functional organization of the prefrontal cortex in humans, the various functions that the reward dopaminergic system exerts on cognition and motivation and the neural mechanisms underlying dysfunctions of these two systems in patients with neurological or psychiatric illnesses (Parkinson’s disease, patients with focal prefrontal cortex lesions, schizophrenia and pathological gambling). In parallel, he is also studying how individual variations in hormones and genes influence reward processing and decision-making. His research work has led to more than 55 publications in refereed journals and 11 book chapters. He is the editor of two books edited by Academic Press: ‘Decision Neuroscience’ (2016) and the ‘Handbook of Reward and decision making’ (2010). He has chaired or been a member of expert panels for the European Union and Board of the laboratory of excellence Labex Cortex (https://www.labex-cortex.com/en). He has received major research achievement awards from the National Institute of Health (NIH, USA) and CNRS awards for excellence in Research.
