Ignacio Saez, Ph.D.

Saez Ignacio Saez, Ph.D., is a neuroscientist at the University of California, Davis, where he is assistant professor at the Department of Neurological Surgery. His postdoctoral training at Virginia Tech and UC Berkeley encompassed computational models of decision-making and choice and human intracranial electrophysiology. His research focuses on the neurobiological basis of human cognition, particularly decision-making. Natural extensions of this work are the study of the brain basis of choice behavior in patient populations, and the development of novel neurostimulation paradigms for treatment of cognitive disorders.
