Prof. Dr. Vahe E. AMASSIAN


Dr. Vahe E. AMASSIAN, world recognized neuroscientist, who made extraordinary achievements in research, teaching and mentoring of graduate students, medical students and biomedical faculty died on January 7, 2013 at age 88. It began by using animal models and progressed in the last three decades to studies on humans using noninvasive trans-cranial magnetic stimulation. Vahe's hallmark was his unwavering scientific honesty. His research on the electrophysiological properties of sensory-motor systems in the brain was passionately sustained for more than 60 years (here).
