Jorge Moll was born and raised in Rio De Janeiro by his Brazilian parents. He attended his graduate studies in 1994 at the Federal University of Rio De Janeiro in Medicine. He then pursued his Ph.D. in 2004 at the University of Sao Paulo in the area of Science (Human Physiology). After completing his Ph.D., Jorge continued with a post-doctoral degree where he specialized in cognitive neuroscience.

Currently, Jorge Moll serves as the head of a unit that deals with Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience. He is also the president and the director of D’Or Institute of Research and Education which is in Rio De Janeiro.

He has carried researchers on neurological disorders and one of them focused on patients whose brains were not able to control their emotions. Jorge’s research aimed at facilitating emotional transitions between different states. To achieve accurate results, he made use of functional magnetic resonance imaging (FMRI) to carry out his experiments.

Since specializing and spending most of his time researching on cognitive neurology, Jorge Moll has come up with major developments which have been used in treating these disorders ( He has found most of the solutions but still carries on with the researches to make sure that the emerging disorders are dealt with. This is because research is a continuous event.

The researchers will also raise an alarm on the threats arising on the human neurology as well as try to make 100% treatment or even prevention of occurrence of these disorders.

From his neurological expertise, Jorge Moll has headed several types of research that seeks to provide solutions to specific neurological disorders. He has also been a research fellow working on different projects under different researchers.

Jorge Moll has won several awards for his research work which he carries out deeply until he can get findings that he develops to find solutions for complex problems. The awards include distinctions Research Fellow NIH award of (2004-2007). Jorge received a Visiting Scholar Award in 2015 from Stanford Neuroscience Institute of Stanford University.

He became a member of the Brazilian Academy of science through elected affiliation in 2008. He has been a board member of the elected governors of the International Neuroethics Society from (2012-2013).
