About Dr. Keller
Dr. Keller has studied sensory processing for over 30 years, starting with his predoctoral work in neuroanatomy with Edward L. White, continuing with his postdoctoral training in neurophysiology with Hiroshi Asanuma at The Rockefeller, and in his own laboratory.
For the past decade, Dr. Keller's work has been focused on brain circuits involved in addiction, chronic pain and affective disorders. He is particularly interested in the role of descending pain modulatory pathways, and in reward pathways—involving thalamus, prefrontal cortex, parabrachial nucleus, periaqueductal gray and related structures—in the affective components of pain, and in drug addiction.
