Dr. Andrea A. Chiba

UC San Diego’s Department of Cognitive Science
Professor, Neuroscience Program
Andrea A. Chiba is a Professor in the Department of Cognitive Science and in the Program of Neuroscience at the University of California, San Diego. The Chiba Laboratory is focused on gaining an understanding of the neural systems and principles underlying aspects of learning, memory, affect, and attention, with an emphasis on neural plasticity. Work in her laboratory is highly interdisciplinary, using a variety of neurobiological, neurochemical, neurophysiology, computational, robotic, and behavioral techniques. She also has extensive experience in the field of aging and neuroplasticity both in animal models and human neuropsychology.

Chiba has been active in the US Brain Initiative. Her team’s work on the neural basis of prosociality and interoception was awarded an NSF BRAIN Initiative Award. Prof. Chiba is also Co-Director and the founding Science Director of the Temporal Dynamics of Learning Center, an NSF Science of Learning Center.

A summer stint in 1987 as an R&D Lab Assistant for Guittard Chocolate helped to define her love of fine chocolate.
