Yogita Chudasama received her B.Sc (Hons) in Applied Psychology, and Ph.D in Behavioral Neuroscience from Cardiff University, Wales, UK. Her Ph.D. was under the mentorship of Dr. Janice Muir studying the relationship between the prefrontal cortex and thalamic nuclei in cognitive behavior. Her first postdoctoral fellowship was in the Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Cambridge UK, with Prof. Trevor Robbins investigating psychopharmacological mechanisms of prefrontal cognitive function. Her second postdoctoral fellowship was in the Laboratory of Neuropsychology at NIMH with Dr. Elisabeth Murray examining the emotional and cognitive contributions of the prefrontal cortex and temporal lobe. In 2007, she then joined the faculty at McGill University Psychology Department in Montreal, Canada.
