Nima Dehghani PhD. MD.

Nima Dehghani received a Ph.D. in Computational Neuroscience from France, and an M.D. from Iran. After his medical training, as a research fellow at the MIT/HMS/MGH Martinos center and then at the UCSD Multimodal Imaging Lab & MGH Cortical Neurophysiology Lab, he worked on multimodal investigation and electromagnetic source localization of sleep rhythms and thalamocortical oscillations.  His work at Unite de Neurosciences, Information et Complexite (UNIC) of Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), was on spectral dynamics of MEG/EEG, assessment of self-organized criticality in invasive ensemble recordings, and analyzing network properties of excitation/inhibition in micro-circuitry of the cerebral cortex. At the Wyss Institute, Nima is planning to use multimodal techniques in conjunction with the theoretical implications of bioelectromagnetism, multiscale interaction, and complex systems to characterize the dynamic patterns of neuro-signals obtained from miniaturized high-throughput microdevices and large-scale recordings. He aims to predict the behavior of such signals with higher accuracy and further enhance their usability for clinical purposes.
