Melanie Boly, MD, PhD

University of Wisconsin, Madison

Melanie Boly is a neurologist and neuroscientist who has worked since about twenty years in the field of altered states of consciousness such as vegetative state, sleep and anesthesia, under the mentorship of Pr. Steven Laureys, Pierre Maquet, Adrian Owen, Marcello Massimini and Karl Friston. 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 a board certified epileptologist, and board certified in neurology in both Europe and the US. Her work has led to date to numerous publications in international peer-reviewed journals (~150 Pubmed-indexed articles, current Google Scholar H-index of 77) and invited talks at international conferences. She is also currently Associate Editor of the journals Neuroimage, Frontiers in Consciousness Research, Frontiers in Brain Imaging Methods and Neuroscience of Consciousness.
