JON DEAN MS
Doctoral Student

Jon is a doctoral student in Physiology at the University of Michigan interested in the neurochemical and electrical underpinnings of consciousness. Jon has ongoing projects in coordination with his mentors Drs. George Mashour and Jimo Borjigin within the Center for Consciousness Science at the University of Michigan’s Medical School. His work includes molecular and genetic studies on endogenous N,N-dimethyltryptamine (DMT) and the DMT synthetic enzymes in rodents and humans across varying physiologic and mental states. The other area of Jon’s research is aimed at quantifying changes in corticocortical information transfer across sleep-wake states as well as before, during, and after anesthetic-induced unconsciousness, and during altered states of consciousness such as those induced by psychedelics.
