Rodolfo is Professor of Neuroscience and Chairman, Department of Physiology and Neuroscience, New York University School of Medicine. He is the author of I of the Vortex: From Neurons to Self, an original explanation of mind and mental function based entirely on the brain. Born in Columbia and having obtained his Ph.D. in Neuroscience at the Australian National University in Canberra under the legendary John Eccles (Nobel Prize in Medicine and Physiology), Rodofo’s research spans molecular and cognitive neuroscience, including pioneering work on the cerebellum and the thalamus. His specific research has involved the following: intrinsic electrophysiological properties of mammalian neurons in vitro, ionic channels, sodium and calcium currents and their distribution in different cell types, the role of calcium conductance in synaptic transmission, cerebellar control of movement and thalamocortical connectivity in brain slices and isolated whole brain preparations, ionic-concentration-dependent imaging techniques, computer-based mathematical models, noninvasive magnetoencephalography, and thalamocortical interaction and functional mapping in the human brain..
