Ludek Nerad

RNDr., Charles University, Czech Republic
Ph.D. (CSc.), Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic

Dr. Ludek Nerad’s main area of interest lies in functional organization of the brain. His decision to build his professional career as a neuroscientist grew while he was a student of physics at the School of Mathematics and Physics of Charles University in Prague.

He completed his CSc. studentship in biology at the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, where he continued working in brain research until 2000. Then he moved to New Zealand to work in the same field for 5 years. Besides, he taught a fourth year course on “Experimental methods in psychology”. Dr. Nerad currently teaches Human Biology and Biology and the Brain at UNYP. His other foreign contracts in brain research included the University of Provence in Marseille, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, and University of Dundee. In his experiments he used various behavioral, surgical, electrophysiological, histological, and computational methods. He is a co-discoverer (with Dr. David Bilkey) of ‘flutter’, a 12-Hz EEG rhythm in the rat brain. Despite his wide experimental experience, he puts more emphasis on theory. He is currently working on a monograph about the principles of conscious awareness.
