Gustav Nilsonne

MD, PhD, researcher in cognitive neuroscience at Stockholm University

“My current work is in the field of cognitive neuroscience, with a focus on emotion regulation and decision making in the brain. In 2010 and 2011, I have worked as a postdoc with Martin Ingvar and Predrag Petrovic on empathy. My main methodological platforms are psychophysiological methods and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).”

Gustav Nilsonne earned his MD in 2009 from the Karolinska Institutet. Later in the same year, he defended his PhD thesis in experimental pathology. The thesis was on the topic of experimental therapeutics for malignant mesothelioma, an uncommon cancer with a poor prognosis. Currently he is working with Mats Lekander and Torbjörn Åkerstedt on the effects of sleep deprivation on emotional regulation and cognitive function.
