Prof. Joshua Goldberg received his BSc in physics and PhD in computational and systems neuroscience from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He conducted postdoctoral training at the University of Texas at San Antonio and was a research assistant professor at Northwestern University before becoming an independent PI at the Hebrew University in 2013. Prof. Goldberg has worked on a variety of preclinical models of Parkinson’s disease (PD) and other movement disorders in primates and transgenic mice. His work has focused on the physiological mechanisms underlying neurodegeneration and the pathophysiological adaptations that occur in global brain dynamics and in the autonomous activity of neurons affected by these disorders. Recently, Prof. Goldberg’s research has centered on the pathophysiology underlying the nonmotor prodromal symptoms of PD, including dysautonomia and constipation; anxiety and depression; and pain. His aim is to identify novel physiological biomarkers and therapeutic PD targets.
