"Yasuo Kubota"

Yasuo Kubota received his Ph.D. in Psychology, from the University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign (1986 - 1996). During his graduate training he worked in the laboratory of Dr. Michael Gabriel, on the neurophysiological and neuroanatomical cingulothalamic underpinnings of discriminative instrumental avoidance learning. Dr. Kubota then undertook postdoctoral studies in the laboratory of Dr. Ann Graybiel of the MIT Program in Neural Science, where he has carried out many important studies of the neurophysiology of motor control and plasticity in the Basal Ganglia.
