Dr. Neugebauer is Professor and Chair, Department of Pharmacology and Neuroscience, Executive Director and Chief Scientific Officer, Garrison Institute on Aging, and Director, Center of Excellence for Translational Neuroscience and Therapeutics at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center. He obtained his MD and PhD degrees from the University of Würzburg. He received broad training in physiology, pharmacology, neuroscience and neurology at the University of Würzburg and the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston. Dr. Neugebauer has been studying synaptic and cellular mechanisms of neuroplasticity and brain functions in pain, comorbid conditions, and various neurological and psychiatric disorders for more than 30 years. His work has been published in 150 articles and has been funded continuously by NIH for nearly 25 years. The analysis of emotional-affective and cognitive brain mechanisms of pain centered on amygdala plasticity and interactions with cortical regions is a key contribution to pain research and neuroscience.
