Linda Wilbrecht, PhD
Linda Wilbrecht, PhDAssociate Professor of Psychology
Linda Wilbrecht’s research is focused on how experience alters neural circuits that contribute to value and reward based decision making. She did her PhD research in the laboratory of Fernando Nottebohm at the Rockefeller University and postdoctoral training at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory with Karel Svoboda and UCSF with Michael Merzenich. From 2008-2013, Dr. Wilbrecht was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Neurology at UCSF and an Investigator at the Ernest Gallo Clinic and Research Center. In 2013,  Wilbrecht moved her lab to the Psychology Department at the University of California, Berkeley and became a member of the Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute. She is also a recipient of the 2009 NIMH Biobehavioral Research Award for Innovative New Scientists (BRAINS award) and a 2010 Presidential Early Career Award for Science and Engineering (PECASE).
