John C. Mosher, PhD
MEG Research, Director
Cleveland Clinic Neurological Institute, Cleveland, OH USA
Dr. Mosher received his Bachelors in Electrical Engineering with Highest Honors from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1983. From 1981 - 1982 he was an exchange scholar student with the Eidgenoessische Technische Hochschule Zuerich, Switzerland. From 1979 - 1983 he was also a Cooperative Education student with Hughes Aircraft Company in Fullerton, California. From 1983 - 1993, he worked at TRW in Los Angeles, California, as a scientist and senior scientist researching signal analysis procedures for electromagnetic pulse effects on aircraft. While at TRW, he received his M.S. (1985) and Ph.D. (1993) in Electrical Engineering from the Signal & Image Processing Institute of the University of Southern California. Upon graduation in 1993, he accepted a staff position at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos, New Mexico. In May 2008, Dr. Mosher joined the Physician Staff in the Epilepsy Center to head its new magnetoencephalography (MEG) research program.
Since 1994, Dr. Mosher has been without interruption a Principal Investigator or Co-Investigator on competitive grants from the National Institutes of Health, as well as several competitive Laboratory Directed Research and Development grants. In his research role, he has served as a formal Mentor of Laboratory-employed students and post-docs, and as an informal mentor of his collaborator's students and post-docs. Working closely with these students and his collaborators, he has continuously published in his field of biomedical research since 1990.
As of 2011, Dr. Mosher has over 2,400 citations to over 100 papers appearing in the ISI Citation database. His landmark paper in 1992 remains today one of the most cited original research papers in magnetoencephalography, with over 650 total citations of the original article. Additionally, this 1992 paper was included in the landmark 1993 review paper, “Magnetoencephalography — theory, instrumentation, and applications to noninvasive studies of the working human brain,” M Hämäläinen, R Hari, RJ Ilmoniemi, J Knuutila, …, Reviews of Modern Physics, which itself now has over 1,800 citations, making Dr. Mosher’s notation and approach one of the standards in MEG signal processing.
