Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience, Georgia State University

William D. Hopkins, PhD, is a cognitive neuroscientist associated with Georgia State University and the Yerkes National Primate Research Center. His research interests largely revolve around human evolution, particularly the evolution of human language, through the study of non-human primates.

His research employs non-invasive imaging techniques like magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and positron emission tomography (PET) to visual brain structure and function, in tandem with behavioural and cognitive studies.
