Guillaume Sescousse | Senior post doc


Guillaume Sescousse completed his undergraduate degree in biochemical engineering in Lyon, France, in 2005. During that time he also completed an internship in Alain Dagher’s group at the Montreal Neurological Institute (Montreal, Canada), where he worked on the neural correlates of gambling. He then moved back to Lyon to do an MSc and a PhD in neuroscience under the supervision of Jean-Claude Dreher at the CNRS Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience. His thesis examined reward processing in healthy adults and various populations of psychiatric patients. In early 2011 he was awarded a two-year Rubicon postdoctoral fellowship and joined the lab of Roshan Cools to pursue a research project investigating reward sensitivity and loss aversion behavior in pathological gambling. He is now senior post doc in the lab.
