David A. Gallo

David A. Gallo is a psychologist interested in the functions of the human brain. He researches how we actively (and sometimes inaccurately) reconstruct the past from memory, and how memory and related cognitive functions are impacted by different factors (e.g., healthy aging and Alzheimer’s disease; psychoactive drugs; artificial brain stimulation). 

Prof. Gallo is the director of UChicago’s Memory Research Laboratory, where research tools from cognitive psychology and neuroscience are used to study memory and cognition in different contexts.
