Prof. György Benedek, MD, PhD, D.Sc.
He works for the Department of Physiology since 1965. He started his activity here as a student externist, then after graduation in 1968 he was employed as a full-time teacher/researcher. He was appointed to be the Chairman of the Department in 1986. He received his PhD for his Thesis "Basal Forebrain Hypnogenic Mechanisms" in 1982, and received his D.Sc. degree for his Thesis "A tecto-thalamo-cortical pathway in the visual system of the cat" in 1992. He was a Humboldt-Fellow in the Neurobiology Unit of the Max-Planck Institut for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen under Otto Creutzfeldt`s supervision in 1980/81 and 1963, spent an extended time at the Calgary University in 1985/86 and he was a William-Fulbright Fellow at the Bowman-Gray Medical School in 1993/94. He spent some shorter time at the Department of Clinical Neurophysiology at the Turku University, at the Department of Anatomy of the Göttingen University and at the Department of Anatomy of the Fujita-Gakuen Medical University. He was the organizer of the Symposium "Extrageniculostriate Visual Mechanisms" in Szeged in 1986 and consequently an editor of the book that appeared at Elsevier with the same title. He was an invited speaker at the IUPS conference in 1986, at the Sleep Research Conference in Kopenhaven in 1988, in the Nencki Institut in Warsaw, at the University of Zürich, Lausenne. Giessen, Tübingen, Oxford, Memphis. Leuwen, Sidney at the Semmelweis Medical University in Budapest and at the National Institut of Drug Addiction in Baltimore. His research activity was concentrated on problems of clinical and experimental electrophysiology including vision research. Together with his coworkers he described the anatomical and physiological characteristics of a hitherto undetected tecto-thalamo-cortical multimodal pathway in the feline brain. He published more than 110 full publications, mostly in international journals. The cumulative impact factor of his publications is around 90. The number of citations to his publications in international journals amounts to 520.
