Andras Horvath

medical doctor, neuroscientist

"If you want go fast, go alone. If you want go far, go together."

I am a medical doctor being interested in the neural background of cognitive decline. I participate as a postdoc fellow in the National Brain Research Program Hungary and work as a teacher at Semmelweis University Department of Anatomy, Histology and Embriology.  My current research is focused on the identification of neurophysiological and sleep biomarkers for the early detection of dementia. I have a Master of Science in medicine and did my PhD at the Semmelweis University, János Szentágothai Doctor School of Neurosciences. In my PhD, I examined patients with Alzheimer’s-disease using long-term ambulatory electroencephalograpy and demonstrated high prevalence of epileptic activity and strong assocation between cognitive deterioration and epilepsy. When not in the lab, I travel, read and play basketball.
