With over ten years’ experience in neuropsychology and brain connectivity neuroimaging, Dr. Thiebaut de Schotten benefit from an established scientific track record and have made solid contributions to the field of neuroscience. His work, published in Science (2005),revealed that spatial neglect in humans, as previously demonstrated in simians, is a consequence of the disruption of communication between the frontal and the parietal lobes, and thus should be considered as a disconnection syndrome. Moreover, as a post-doctorate researcher, Dr. Thiebaut de Schotten mapped, for the first time, the organisation of white matter anatomy in the healthy human living brain comparing it with simians axonal tracing and was published in Nature Neuroscience (2011), Neuroimage (2011), Cortex (2012, most cited paper in Cortex with over 140 cites) as well as inthe Atlas of the Human Brain Connections (Oxford University Press, 2012). As a principal investigator (PI) or co-PI he received several grants (about 2 millions euros in total), including the Marie Curie fellowship in 2007. He have also pursued work concerning brain connectivity in stroke populations by identifying new brain-behaviour associations and was recently published in Cerebral Cortex (2014). He is co-founder of the NatBrainLab (http://www.natbrainlab.com) and play a key role in the facilitation and in the organization of the International School of Clinical Neuroanatomy’s(http://www.isocn.eu) and Organization for Human Brain Mapping (http://www.humanbrainmapping.org) annual conference. As a practised neuroscientist, his expert opinion is frequently sought by high-level scientific journals including Cortex, where he currently serve as Associate Editor. In 2014, Dr. Thiebaut de Schotten was awarded the prestigious British Neuropsychological Society’s Early Career Award: The Elizabeth Warrington Prize and the ‘Cortex’ Prize. At present, he is a tenured CNRS Researcher at the Brain and Spine Institute in Paris, lead a team of 1 research fellow, 1 post doc, 1 PhD as well as regular MSc students (http://www.brainconnectivitybehaviour.eu) and holds numerous international collaborations.
