Neil V. Watson

Neil V. Watson

Dr. Neil V. Watson's work on topics ranging from the neural control of reproductive behavior to the effects of steroids on cell survival to human cognitive sex differences has appeared in a variety of journals, including the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, and Brain Research and Journal of Neuroscience.

Dr. Watson and the members of his lab at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada study sex-related aspects of the function and structure of the nervous system, with ongoing grant support from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada. He got his undergraduate and master's degrees from the University of Western Ontario and his Ph.D. from the University of British Columbia. Following a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of California, Berkeley, Neil joined the faculty at SFU in 1996 where he is now Professor of Neuroscience in the Department of Psychology. He teaches biological psychology to hundreds of graduate and undergraduate students every year.
