Daniel T. Tranel (born October 20, 1957) is an American professor of neurology at the University of Iowa. He has been recognized as a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. While a graduate student, he helped establish the Iowa Neurological Patient Registry, which he currently directs. Tranel also directs the Interdisciplinary Graduate Program in Neuroscience at the University of Iowa. He also serves as editor-in-chief of the Journal of Clinical and Experimental Neuropsychology.

Tranel researches brain-behavior relationships in humans. He uses the lesion method, neuropsychological testing, and functional imaging (including PET and fMRI) to study topics such as retrieval of knowledge and words, emotion and decision-making, fact processing, noncoscious processing, memory, and psychophysiology.

Tranel became known for being one of a pair of professors who rejected the graduate school application of Aurora theater gunman James Holmes.

In 2010, he published a fear study in which a woman did not experience fear because her amygdala was damaged.
