Dr. Zoltan Nadasdy is a Adjunct Professor at Department of Psychology in the University of Texas at Austin, USA. Zoltan Nadasdy is also a Research Scientist at the Neurosicence Institute of St. David's Hospital, an Adjunct Assistant Professor at UT Austin, and an Assistant Professor at the Eotvos Lorand University of Budapest. His main interest is to understand the fundamental mechanisms of neural coding, in particular the relationship between intrinsic oscillations and spike patterns. He developed these ideas over the years of studying Neuroscience at the Rutgers University (Ph.D.) and during his post-doctoral trainings in electrophysiology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and at the California Institute of Technology. His research areas are spike sequences, neural coding, neural correlates of conscious visual perception and the function and dysfunction of neuronal oscillations in the brain. Currently he is working in the field of human electrophysiology in collaboration with clinical groups at the St. David's hospital, Dell Children's Hospital and University Medical Center at Brackenridge. His clinical research areas are epilepsy, seizure localization, Parkinson's disease, human spatial navigation and spatial cognition, memory, visual perception and consciousness.
