Mark Zinn, Ph.D., has expertise in quantitative and tomographic EEG methods to test hypotheses in studies involving neurocognitive disorders. For 3 years he served as a medical research consultant at Stanford School of Medicine to study brain electrical activity correlates of cognitive impairment in Infection-associated chronic diseases. Using an electrical neuroimaging approach, he was able to characterize neuronal dysregulation within specific brain regions and brain systems contributing to decreasing arousal levels and cortical hypofunction in patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Mark offers a unique perspective with his multi-disciplinary background in music and science. After having obtained a master of music degree and performers certificate (artist diploma) in piano performance, he subsequently re-specialized in health psychology with emphasis in neuroscience. For the past 15 years, he has been an author in numerous publications and conference presentations related to behavioral medicine and quantitative EEG in the performing arts. He is now co-director of the NeuroCognitive Research Institute, with primary focus is to promote research aimed at advancing the diagnosis and treatment of diseases affecting the brain.
