IBRO is excited to welcome Dr. Daniela Schiller as the new Associate Editor-in-Chief of our flagship journal Neuroscience.
Dr. Daniela Schiller is a Professor in the Department of Psychiatry, the Nash Family Department of Neuroscience, and the Friedman Brain Institute, at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Schiller got her PhD at Tel Aviv University where she developed an animal model for negative symptoms of schizophrenia. She then continued to do a postdoctoral fellowship at New York University where she examined methods for emotional memory modification in the human brain.
Schiller joined Mount Sinai in 2010 and has been directing the affective neuroscience laboratory since. Her research focusses on emotional learning and memory and social cognition. To name a few, her lab has delineated – in the neurotypical brain and in clinical populations – the neural computations of threat learning, how the brain modifies emotional memories using imagination, and the dynamic tracking of affective states and social relationships.
Schiller’s work has been published in numerous scholarly journals, including Neuroscience, Nature, Neuron, Nature Neuroscience, and the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. She is a Fulbright Fellow and a Kavli Frontiers of Science Fellow, and has been the recipient of many awards, including the New York Academy of Sciences’ Blavatnik Award, and the Klingenstein-Simons Fellowship Award in the Neurosciences.
