Melanie Boly MD, PhD

University of Wisconsin

Melanie Boly is a neurologist and neuroscientist. She has worked since more than fifteen years in the field of altered states of consciousness such as vegetative state, sleep and anesthesia. Her research aims at combining neuroimaging techniques such as PET, functional MRI, TMS-EEG, and high density EEG to a theoretical framework, the integrated information theory of consciousness, hoping to uncover the neural mechanisms of the level and contents of consciousness in healthy subjects and neurological patients. She is currently Assistant Professor in the Department of Neurology at the University of Wisconsin.
