Karl Deisseroth

Professor of Bioengineering and of Psychiatry and of Behavioral Sciences
Karl Deisseroth

Professor Deisseroth’s research group focuses on developing molecular and cellular tools to observe, perturb, and reengineer brain circuits. His group is based in the James H. Clark Center at Stanford and uses a range of techniques including neural stem cell and tissue engineering methods, electrophysiology, molecular biology, neural activity imaging, animal behavior, and computational neural network modeling. Professor Deisseroth, who is also a clinician in the Department of Psychiatry, uses novel electromagnetic brain stimulation techniques in human patients for therapeutic purposes
