Dr. Baker completed a PhD in Brain and Cognitive Sciences in 2012 at the University of Victoria (Canada). He then completed two post-doctoral internships in the same field, the first at the University of Montreal and the second at McGill University. Dr. Baker’s research focuses on three related themes: executive control, learning, and memory, and how these processes are altered in clinical populations such as drug addicts. He uses a variety of demanding experimental techniques, such as functional magnetic resonance imaging, diffusion tensor imaging, transcranial magnetic stimulation, and electroencephalography and combines them in new and creative ways. His work embodies a “bench to bedside” translational approach: building on his recent success, he plans on using a multimodal approach to determine how aberrant reward signaling is altered in various clinical populations and treat these subjects by correcting the aberrant signals using noninvasive methods.
