Professor Edmund Rolls is a psychologist and neuroscientist based at the Department of Experimental Psychology at the University of Oxford and fellow and tutor of Corpus Christi College, Oxford. He is principally a computational neuroscientist. His interests are varied and he has shown that some human brain cells respond to umami, the 'fifth taste'. Much of his early work was conducted with Barbara Rolls, a nutrition researcher now at Pennsylvania State University.

Rolls has published hundreds of articles in various journals, as well as several books. Two of his principal books are Neural Networks and Brain Function (Rolls & Treves, 1997; ISBN 0-19-852432-3) and Computational Neuroscience of Vision (Rolls & Deco, 2001; ISBN 0-19-852489-7). More recently he has expanded some of his earlier work on emotion.

Rolls is listed in Who's Who which contains details of his earlier education and interests.
