About the PNAS Member Editor
Name Goldberg, Michael E.
Location Columbia University
Primary Field Systems Neuroscience
Secondary Field Psychological and Cognitive Sciences
 Election Citation
Goldberg has made pioneering discoveries on the brain mechanisms underlying our stable representation of the visual world in spite of our own movements and the attention mechanisms that direct those movements. His ideas on brain saliency maps and remapping provide the critical concepts for these brain mechanisms.
 Research Interests
My lab works on systems neuroscience in awake, behaving monkeys, studying the physiology of cognition, using vision and eye movements as a probe. I am currently working on the role of oculomotor proprioception in long-term memory, the role of acetyl choline in arousal and motivation, the role of the cerebellum in visuomotor association - we have the first solid evidence in the monkey for the cerebellum's role in non-motor learning- and the role of the parahippocampal gyrus in spatial perception.
