About me

Guillaume SescousseI’m a cognitive neuroscientist interested in reward processing and risky decision-making. I’m particularly interested in how those processes are impaired in various psychiatric disorders, in particular gambling addiction. I use a combination of neuroimaging techniques (fMRI, PET), pharmacological manipulations, and behavioral approaches derived from experimental economics.

I obtained my PhD in 2011, under the supervision of Jean-Claude Dreher at the Institut des Sciences Cognitives (CNRS) in Lyon, France. Between 2011 and 2017, I worked as a post-doctoral fellow in the lab of Roshan Cools at the Donders Institute in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. Since October 2018, I work as a tenured researcher at the Centre de Recherche en Neurosciences de Lyon (CNRS-INSERM), Lyon, France.
