Academic Appointment

Professor, Department of Clinical Neurological Sciences, Neuroscience, Physiology and Pharmacology, Neurology, Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, The University of Western Ontario.

Bio Sketch

Dr. Mandar Jog is the Director of the National Parkinson Foundation Centre of Excellence at London Health Sciences Centre, Director of the Movement Disorders Program in London, Ontario and Professor of Neurology at Western University. He trained in Neurology and completed a Movement Disorder fellowship with Dr. Anthony Lang in Toronto. He then completed a post-doctoral fellowship in basal ganglia neuroelectrophysiology under the supervision of Dr. Ann Graybiel at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Boston followed by a visiting Professorship in Computational Modeling at the Artificial Intelligence Group in Stanford Research Institute, California.

Dr. Jog's research interests include topics such as motor control, neurophysiology and computational modeling, multichannel recording and web-based teaching of movement disorders. He has trained many undergraduates, graduates, PhD students and post-doctoral fellows from physiology, neuroscience, physics, computer science and engineering and has travelled internationally to conduct workshops and courses along with many speaking engagements. Dr. Jog has a passion for clinical and scientific innovation and hold numerous patents that are reaching commercialization with strong collaboration with university technology transfer and industry partners. Dr. Jog holds multiple patents relating to electrophysiological technology and is the founder of Medtrode Inc. and ManJog Enterprises.

Research

Dr. Jog's research focus attempts to understand the structure and function of the basal ganglia and their role in movement disorders. The focus of Dr. Jog's research projects includes:

1. Speech, gait, balance, posture, tremor and planning;
2. Human and animal models and electrophysiology of the basal ganglia
3. Human intraoperative electrophysiological recording
4. Analysis of computational and mathematical modeling of these data.

Current projects involve collaborations with the Department of Computer Sciences, Engineering, Physics, and CSTAR.
In addition, Dr. Jog participates in many national and international clinical trials of new and innovative treatments for movement disorders. He is also developing new state-of-the-art projects including new intraoperative implantable multichannel probes, interactive teaching website for movement disorders (toxin-med.com), and medical devices for improving the patient's quality of life.
