"When people ask me what they can do to keep their brains healthy, I say take vitamin E," says Jeff Victoroff, M.D., a neurologist at the University of Southern California and author of Saving Your Brain (Bantam, 2002).
Dr. Victoroff says the best choice is natural.

Jeff Victoroff began his career in academic medicine. After training in Neurology and Psychiatry at Harvard and a fellowship in Neurobehavior at UCLA, he joined the faculty of the University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine. His initial research focused on neurodegeneration and on the reasons for aggression seen in patients with neurological disorders. After 9/11 he made a dramatic change in his research career to study the deep causes of human aggression, including both individual and collective violence, from a transdisciplinary perspective.

Dr. Victoroff studied the Great Books at St. John's College (BA '74), began his graduate studies in social sciences at the University of Chicago (MA '78), then attended medical school at Case Western Reserve University (MD '82). He trained at Harvard in Neurology and Psychiatry and is board certified in both. He completed his fellowship in Neurobehavior at UCLA. He began his academic career at the University of Southern California studying behavioral complications of neurological conditions, with a focus on aggression. Following 9/11, he made a decision to combine his background in social science and neurobehavior to investigate the biopsychosocial bases of human conflict, violence, oppression and terrorism. His current research includes review of the empirically based understanding of motivations for substate terrorism, studies of social and neurological factors in violent and terrorist behavior, piloting the first self-rated questionnaire for perceived oppression, and collaborations with the Gaza Community Mental Health Programme to investigate social, psychological, and neuroendocrine factors in children living through the Intifada. He is also developing a prospective research project to determine how interventions to improve tolerance and reduce prejudice might influence sympathy for terrorism among young people living in oppression. He is a member of the UN Roster of Terrorism Experts, a member of the Organizing Committee for the Madrid Summit on Terrorism, and the Director of the NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Social and Psychological Factors in the Genesis of Terrorism. He serves as Associate Professor of Clinical Neurology and Psychiatry at the USC Keck School of Medicine and Director of the Neuropsychiatry Clinic. His most recent pertinent publications is: "The Mind of the Terrorist: A Review and Critique of Psychological Approaches" (Journal of Conflict Resolution, 2005).
