    Edward M. Hundert, MD, is Senior Lecturer in Medical Ethics, and is also Director of the Center for Teaching and Learning at Harvard Medical School, where he directs the Medical Ethics and Professionalism curriculum for students and the Academy Fellowship in Medical Education for faculty. He has served as President of Case Western Reserve University, Dean of the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry, and Associate Dean for Student Affairs at Harvard Medical School, and has held professorial appointments in psychiatry, medical ethics, cognitive science, and medical humanities. Dr. Hundert is a member of the board of TIAA-CREF and has previously served on the boards of the Association of American Universities, the American Association of Medical Colleges, the Liaison Committee on Medical Education, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He co-chaired the Institute of Medicine’s National Summit on Health Professions Education. Dr. Hundert has written dozens of articles and chapters on a variety of topics in psychiatry, philosophy, medical ethics, and medical education, as well as two books: Philosophy, Psychiatry and Neuroscience: Three Approaches to the Mind (Oxford University Press, 1989), and Lessons from an Optical Illusion: On Nature and Nurture, Knowledge and Values (Harvard University Press, 1995).

    Randy Buckner, PhD, is Principal Investigator of Harvard University’s Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory (CNL), Professor of Psychology at Harvard University, member of the Center for Brain Science, where he is affiliated with the Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at the Massachusetts General Hospital / Harvard Medical School, and an Investigator for the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. His research applies neuroimaging techniques to explore brain areas involved in human memory. Recently he has focused on three interrelated questions: how human prefrontal cortex may participate in the formation and retrieval of memories, and how these structures may interact with medial temporal regions; how the human brain codes the remnants (the echo) of a memory while it is being remembered; and how activity within the human brain changes when items are repeated. Dr. Buckner also has become interested in how information about the healthy brain can help guide our understanding of damaged and diseased brain states such as those occurring after a stroke or during the progression of dementia of the Alzheimer type (DAT). A final focus of his work is the development of novel methods for functional neuroimaging – such as those employed during event-related fMRI.

    Lisa Feldman Barrett, PhD, is University Distinguished Professor of Psychology and Director of the Interdisciplinary Affective Science Laboratory (IASLab) at Northeastern University, Research Scientist at Northeastern’s Department of Psychiatry, and Research Neuroscientist in the Department of Radiology at Massachusetts General Hospital. Dr. Barrett’s research focuses on the nature of emotion from psychological and neuroscience perspectives and takes inspiration from anthropology, philosophy, and linguistics. Her lab takes an interdisciplinary perspective approach and incorporates methods from social, clinical, and personality psychology, psychophysiology, cognitive science, cognitive neuroscience, and visual cognition. Current projects focus on understanding the psychological construction of emotion, age- and disease-related changes in affective circuitry within the human brain, how language and context influence emotion perception, how affect influences vision, and sex differences in emotion. Dr. Barrett is the recipient of numerous fellowships and awards, including an Independent Scientist Research Award from the National Institute of Mental Health and an NIH Director’s Pioneer Award for groundbreaking research in the science of emotion. She has published over 120 papers and chapters and edited four volumes, including the third edition of the Handbook of Emotion (2008), and authored a White Paper on the science of emotion for the National Research Council.

    Amanda C. Pustilnik is an Associate Professor of Law at the University of Maryland School of Law, where she teaches Criminal Law, Evidence, and Law and Neuroscience. Her current research includes work on models of mind in criminal law, evidentiary issues presented by neuroscientific work on memory, and the role of pain in different legal domains. Prior to joining the University of Maryland, she was a Climenko fellow and lecturer on law at Harvard Law School. Before entering the legal academy, she practiced litigation with the firms Covington & Burling and with Sullivan & Cromwell, where she focused on white-collar criminal matters. Prof. Pustilnik also clerked for the Hon. Jose A. Cabranes on the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. She graduated from Yale Law School and Harvard College, and has been a visiting scholar at the University of Cambridge, Emmanuel College, in the History and Philosophy of Science Department. Prof. Pustilnik has also worked at McKinsey & Company as a management consultant and is a member of the board of directors of the John Harvard Scholarships.
