About Arnaud Delorme

Arnaud Delorme

Arnaud Delorme, PhD, is a CNRS principal investigator in Toulouse, France, a faculty at the University of San Diego California, and a consulting research scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences. He is a long term Zen meditator, and has taught in India on the neural correlates of conscious experience in a Master's degree program for the Birla Institute of Technology. Starting in 2002, he started to look at brain dynamical changes underlying extra-ordinary states of consciousness including meditation, psycho-active agents, and mediumship.

Arnaud Delorme, PhD, is a CNRS principal investigator in Toulouse, France, a faculty at the University of San Diego California, and a consulting research scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences. In 2000, Dr. Delorme completed his PhD Thesis on visual categorization in humans, monkeys, and machines. Dr. Delorme then moved to the Salk Institute for a post-doc in Terry Sejnowski and Francis Crick’s laboratory where he focused on statistical analysis of electro-encephalographic (EEG) signal recorded during various cognitive tasks. He developed the free EEGLAB software for advanced analysis of EEG signals in collaboration with Scott Makeig, software which is now amongst the most used software in EEG research worldwide. He was awarded a Brettencourt-Schueller young investigator award and a 10-year anniversary ANT young investigator award for his contributions to the field of EEG research.

Dr. Delorme has a keen interest in the scientific study of consciousness and spirituality. He is a long term Zen meditator, and has taught in India on the neural correlates of conscious experience in a Master's degree program for the Birla Institute of Technology. Starting in 2002, he started to look at brain dynamical changes underlying extra-ordinary states of consciousness including meditation, psycho-active agents, and mediumship. He is also investigating means by which technology, in particular multi-channel neurofeedback, could be used to assist meditation practice.

Most of Arnaud Delorme’s articles are available publicly from Thompson Reuters.

Some publications are also available in the online IONS Library
