StuphornVeitVEIT STUPHORN is the Robert G. Merrick Jr. Research Chairholder (Mind/Brain Institute). He is an associate professor in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences and a member of the Zanvyl Krieger Mind Brain Institute. He earned his PhD in neuroscience from Ruhr University, Bochum, Germany.

His primary research interest is in the neuronal mechanisms that underlie the ability to control behavior and to make decisions by recording the activity of single neurons and local field potentials in awake, behaving monkeys. His current research projects involve experiments to test the causal role of frontal cortical areas in decision-making and the interactions between multiple brain regions in control of behavior.

Before joining Hopkins in 2004, Dr. Stuphorn served as research associate in the Vision Research Center at Vanderbilt University. In 2001 he received the Young Scientist Award from the John F. Kennedy Center for Research on Human Development.
