Arnaud Delorme is a Professor of Neuroscience at the Paul Sabatier University in Toulouse and a faculty at the University of California, San Diego. Over the course of his short career, he has been first author or co-author on 42 publications: 36 articles published in peer-reviewed journals as well as 3 book chapters and 3 conference articles. He has published one or several articles in each of Trends in Cognitive Science, PLOS One, PLOS Biology, Journal of Neuroscience, Journal of Neuroscience Methods, Neuromage, Neuroreport, Journal of Cognitive Science, and Vision Research. According to Thomson Reuter, the articles Dr. Arnaud Delorme has published so far total more than 2,530 citations.[1] He has been acknowledged for his contribution in the field of EEG research by being awarded the Bettencourt Schueller Foundation Young Investigator Award[2] and one (of three) of the ANT EEG Company 10-year Anniversary Young Researcher Awards in 2006.[3] He was ranked major for his 3 undergraduates degrees passed simultaneously in Mathematics, Informatics, and Biology what was unheard in Universite Paris XII before him.[4]

Complete listings[7]


  • Published one of the first article on the EEG neural correlate of mind wandering in 2011, which was also one of the first brain-imaging experiment relying on pure introspection.[8]
  • Published one of the first article extracting brain data from eye EEG channels. This is also, one of the first article explicitly linking single-trial channel activity with underlying EEG sources separated using Independent Component Analysis.[9]
  • Developed software tools for analysis of spontaneous and event related EEG data (EEGLAB). A. Delorme wrote the software EEGLAB in collaboration with S. Makeig at UCSD, which is made publically available on the Internet and is to date, the most popular software for analyzing EEG data (more than 130,000 downloads to date).[10] It contains ground breaking signal processing tools not available in any commercial software package.[11] A. Delorme have also co-organized and supervised the management and presentation of more than 18 symposia worldwide on EEG signal processing. The landmark EEGLAB article in J of Neuroscience Methods has been cited more than 1780 times as of July 2013 according to Thompson Reuters.[12]
  • Published a landmark article showing that achromatic visual information is processed faster and before chromatic information.[14]
  • Design of one of the largest biologically plausible neural network ever simulated for processing natural photographs (about 30 million neurons and 300 billion connections). This neural network was able to recognize faces of individuals.[15]
