jane“BAINWAVES” are what you might call the signals we record here in the Neurophysiology room, and that’s where I come in.

My name is Jane Richmond and I’m a Neurophysiology Scientist with Dr  Swapna Sebastion at the John Flynn Hospital.  Despite many years in the fields of neurophysiology  and paediatrics, I still enjoy, and am passionate about the work I do and the people I  care for each day . I have been lucky enough to work in some of Australia’s largest teaching hospitals, rural practices, as well as Great Ormond Street  Hospital for children in the UK

Because the EEG test is painless and easily tolerated by children and adults alike, the task of making clients happy and co- operative is rarely a challenge and most people leave more relaxed than when they arrive.

I even enjoy the commute to work as it gives me and excuse to get on my motorbike and blow off the cobwebs (both literal and figurative!) So next time  you meet a nerdy looking neuroscientist – beware- beneath that quiet exterior may  lurks a wannabe motoGP racer!!
