Dr. Jasiukaitis received his doctoral degree in psychology from the City University of New York in 1986. His studies there were in the neurophysiological bases of behavior, with a concentration on the human EEG (electroencephalogram) and sensory evoked responses from the human brain. He was trained in intra-operative monitoring at the University of Pittsburgh’s Medical School in 1988 and has been with UCSF’s intra-operative team since April 2003. His post-doctoral research has included the areas of memory, attention, mood disorders, PTSD, schizophrenia, hypnosis, substance dependency, and the mathematical modeling of treatment outcomes
