Dr Nicholas Tsarouchas is a Brain Researcher and Consultant in Neurology (Epileptology) and Clinical Neurophysiology at East Kent University Hospitals NHS Trust and King’s College Hospital London, United Kingdom. He works at the physiology of complex neuronal brain networks to improve human behaviour in health and disease.
Nicholas has lived, trained and worked in Europe, USA and Canada. He settled in the United Kingdom 15 years ago where he completed most of his medical, neurological and more specialised training. Lifelong studies into the brain and its functions have advanced his research, especially through his role as Honorary Consultant in Clinical Neurophysiology at King’s College Hospital, London.
Nicholas has been exploring for years the effects of music on our brains, health, emotions, thinking, and behaviour. In 2022 he led the first classical musical concert with brain-computer interface (BCI) devices on performers and audience members, that allowed to map brain waves and gauge the impact of music on emotions. Nicholas believes in the connection between Science and Art, which can lead to a healthier, more balanced and fulfilling life. His life and work, and how Medicine, Engineering and Art/Music (e.g. Neurologic, Psychologic and Integrated Music Therapies) can be combined to deliver a more holistic healthcare, have been recently brought to light by BOAST Magazine in London.
