Kenneth T. Kishida is an Associate Professor at Wake Forest School of Medicine with appointments in the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology, the Department of Neurosurgery, and the Department of Biomedical Engineering. His research grapples with the questions of how the human brain gives rise to conscious subjective experiences and how those processes guide human behavior and decision-making.

His lab utilizes a combination of neuroimaging tools including fMRI, MEG, and novel intracranial measures such as human fast-scan cyclic voltammetry. Kishida's research into human consciousness and decision-making helps contribute to an understanding of the neurobiological basis how movement disorders and psychiatric conditions, such as Parkinson's disease and epilepsy.
