Roger S. Noss PhD, CNIM, D.ABNM
  • Surgical Neuromonitoring
Dr. Noss joined the Neurophysiological Monitoring Service at UCSF in 1999 under Dr. Charles Yingling after completing postdoctoral training in electrophysiology and image analysis. His current research interests include signal-processing methods of sensory systems—vision, hearing, and somatosensation—to provide rapidly updated, reliable information to surgeons about patients’ neurological state.
