Jack Gallant is Chancellor’s Professor and Class of 1940 Chair at the University of California at Berkeley. He holds appointments in the Departments of Psychology, Neuroscience, and Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences. He is a senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and past Chair of the IEEE Brain Community.
Professor Gallant’s research focuses on high-resolution functional mapping and quantitative computational modeling of human brain networks. His lab has created detailed functional maps of human brain networks mediating vision, language comprehension, and navigation. They have used these maps to decode and reconstruct perceptual experiences directly from brain activity.
