Vladimir Pravdich-Neminsky (Russian: Владимир Владимирович Правдич-Неминский,Ukrainian: Володимир Володимирович Правдич-Немінський ; 2 July 1879 – 17 May 1952) was Ukrainian and then Soviet physiologist who published the first EEG and the evoked potential of the mammalian brain. He was a representative of Kiev Physiological School. He was a victim of Soviet repressions.

Life[edit]

Vladimir Pravdich-Neminsky was born in Kyiv in Polish-Ukrainian aristocratic family of Neminsky of Prawdzic coat of arms. In 1901-1903 he studied in Kazan University, then coming back to Kyiv to continue education in Kyiv University. In 1908 he obtained a position at physiology chair to study nervous system and to teach physiology and chemistry.

During Ukrainian–Soviet War in 1919 he was mobilized to Red Army to fight epidemic typhus while he fell ill too.

In 1922-1929 he worked in different research institutions in Ukraine. In late 1929 he was arrested and sentenced to 3 years prison in Arkhangelsk. Later in 1932-1944 he was teaching physiology in a few colleges and universities being every time fired and accused as a member of "old regime bourgeois intellectuals".

In 1949 Pravdich-Neminsky was allowed to live and work in Moscow which meant all accusations were taken off. He was a head in Laboratory of Cerebrography of USSR Academy of Sciences until death.
