Eric L. Altschuler, M.D., Ph.D. is an Associate Professor at Temple University School of Medicine in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Temple University Hospital. Previously, he was an Associate Professor of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and Microbiology and Molecular Genetics at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School. His primary interest is in basic and clinically applied cognitive neuroscience: that is, the search to understand how the brain works and how this knowledge can be applied to treat disease.
