Richard Mooney is the George Barth Geller Professor of Neurobiology and Director of Graduate Studies at the Duke University School of Medicine. He earned his undergraduate degree at Yale University and his Ph.D. at Caltech. His broad research goal is to understand the neural mechanisms by which sensory experience guides behavioral learning. To achieve this goal the Mooney lab explores the structure and function of sensorimotor circuits important to learned vocal communication in songbirds and auditory and vocal motor systems in mice. Dr. Mooney has won a number of research awards as well as teaching and mentoring awards. For further information click here.
