Bio Sketch

 Dr. 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 in Toronto and completed a fellowship in Movement disorders with Dr. Anthony Lang. This was followed by a post-doctoral fellowship in Computational Neuroscience at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Boston and a Visiting Professorship at Stanford Research Institute in California.
His research interests on which he has published over 116 papers and 172 abstracts that include topics such as motor control, neurophysiology and computational modeling, multichannel recording and web-based teaching of movement disorders. Dr. Jog has travelled internationally to conduct workshops and courses along with many speaking engagements. Dr. Jog holds multiple patents relating to electrophysiological technology and is the founder of Medtrode Inc. and ManJog Enterprises.

Research

Dr. Jog's research attempts to answer the structure and function of the basal ganglia and their role in movement disorders. His research projects focus on motor control including:

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.
