Michael T. Ullman (born July 29, in 1962, San Francisco, California) is an American neuroscientist whose main field of research is the relationship between language, memory and the brain. His Declarative/Procedural model of language [1][2][3] has greatly affected the field of psycholinguistics and cognitive neuroscience.


Ullman was born in San Francisco, California. He is an alumnus of the French American International School and Lowell High School (1976-1980), both in San Francisco. He received his BA in Computer Science from Harvard University in 1988 and his PhD from the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1993. Ullman is currently an associate professor at Georgetown University[4]. His primary appointment is in the Department of Neuroscience (Georgetown University Medical Center)[5], with secondary appointments in the Departments of Linguistics[6], Neurology[7] and Psychology [8]. He is the founding Director of the Brain and Language Lab [9], founding co-Director of the Center for the Brain Basis of Cognition [10], and founding Director of the Georgetown Cognitive Neuroscience EEG/ERP Center [11][12]. He was a Presidential Columnist for American Psychological Society Observer in 2005 [13].
