Dr Tun Jao

Interests

I am a neurologist with clinical interests in acute stroke and epilepsy management. After receiving a Masters degree in Biomedical Electronics and Bioinformatics in 2010, I started to do my PhD with Prof Ed Bullmore, and my focus is to explore neuroimaging correlates of consciousness with complex network analysis.

My current projects focus on human consciousness under various circumstances, including the dynamics of visual consciousness in healthy young people, shifting consciousness states in experienced meditators, progressive consciousness disturbance in patients with end-stage liver disease, reversible coma in normal subjects under general anaesthesia, etc. I am also very interested in the mechanism and transmission of brain oscillations.
