Maggie Zellner

Maggie Zellner, PhD, LP, is a behavioral neuroscientist and a licensed psychoanalyst in private practice in New York City. She is also executive director of the Neuropsychoanalysis Foundation.

As a student Zellner developed a deep interest in how people communicate and how early experience affects the emotional infrastructure of the brain. Neuropsychology seemed a natural choice for a course of study. After doctoral research on the dopamine system in rewards learning and postdoctoral work with Don Pfaff at The Rockefeller University, she eventually developed a specialty teaching neuroscience to psyshotherapists. She has a reputation for being able to describe complex information about the brain in terms anyone can understand.

Zellner was a curator of the traveling exhibit Brain: The Inside Story, which was exhibited at the American Museum of Natural History in 2010-11 before it traveled to Beijing, China, Granada, and Torino, Italy.

Maggie Zellner is a member of National Psychological Association for Psychoanalysis and an adjunct faculty member at The Rockefeller University. She is also editor of Neuropsychoanalysis, an interdisciplinary journal for psychoanalysis and the neurosciences.
