Dr. Thomas Thesen is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Neurology and the NYU Comprehensive Epilepsy Center. He is a current member of the Multimodel Imaging Labratory at the University of California at San Diego where he received postdoctoral training after completing his doctoral degree at Oxford University. Dr. Thesen co-directs the Neurophysiology Research Group at NYU School of Medicine. The group has special emphasis on cognitive and translational research: moving state-of-the-art brain imaging techniques from the labratory into the clinical practice, and at the same time using the clinical practice, and at the same time using the clinical environmentto generate novel hypothesis about brain function that can be testedin the labratory. The group is also heavily involved in the investigation of basic neuroscience questions dealing with sensory and cognitive processing. In order to gain a better understanding of how the brain accomplishes these tasks, the labratory takes a multimodel approach by using a variety of behavioral and neuroimaging methods, such as fmri, MEG, intra-craniel EEG and psychophysics.
