Chris I. Baker, Ph.D., Investigator

Dr. Baker received his B.A. from the University of Cambridge in 1995 and his Ph.D. from the University of St. Andrews in 1999, where he studied neural mechanisms of object recognition. During a postdoctoral fellowship at the Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition in Pittsburgh, he continued to study neural mechanisms underlying object recognition, combining single unit physiology with human behavioral studies. In 2003, Dr. Baker moved to MIT to pursue functioning neuroimaging in humans during a second postdoctoral fellowship. In 2006, Dr. Baker joined NIMH as an Investigator in the Laboratory of Brain and Cognition. His laboratory currently investigates learning and plasticity in the cortex using a combination of functional imaging and behavioral methods.
