James RillingJames K. Rilling is an Associate Professor of Anthropology at Emory University, with a secondary appointment in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. Dr. Rilling and his colleagues use non-invasive functional brain imaging techniques to compare brain structure and function in monkeys, apes and humans, with the goal of identifying human brain specializations and informing our knowledge of human brain evolution. His lab also investigates the neural bases of human social behavior by measuring brain function with fMRI as subjects play interactive games with human partners.
