Harinder Jaseja

Summary

Affiliation: Vellore EEG Center
Location: Gwalior, India
Summary:
Cerebral Palsy is a neurological disorder of paramount national socio-economic concern with several spastic societies, both in Government and non-Government sectors. Dr Jaseja has proposed an additional novel guideline in the management protocol of patients with Cerebral Palsy for their improved prognosis and quality of life and also shown the efficacy of Vagal Nerve Stimulation (VNS) in such patients.
He has initiated an International debate on the relation between Meditation and Epilepsy evidenced by the large number of publications in recent years. He has also participated actively on the dilemma on treatment of the EEG and has published papers on resolution of the issue.
He has shed significant light on Purpose of Sleep in Man and Vigabatrin administration in West Syndrome.
He has re-defined Meditation and Epilepsy in context to current scenario. Interestingly, he has shown that the Indian traditional application of Shoe-smell in Epilepsy has a sound scientific basis, thus highlighting the scientific approach in Indian traditional remedial measures.
He has proposed the utility of Global Positioning System (GPS) in safeguarding women’s dignity and has also published a novel approach to search for Alien-existence and alien communication.
Early this year (2013), Dr Jaseja has invented and published a new therapeutic electrical stimulation technique for patients with intractable epilepsy, claimed to be highly effective on the basis of its property to enhance and strengthen the body’s inherent anti-epileptic potential.
