Curriculum vitae

Research interests

Dr Brown’s current research involves determining the cause of Ménière’s disease, and the development of a cure. He has developed the first laboratory fully devoted to research into Ménière’s disease with funds raised by Ménière’s Research Fund Incorporated, and located in The Brain & Mind Research Institute.

Dr Brown has a broader interest in sensory electrophysiology, neuroscience and homeostasis, and the development of tools for clinical and experimental diagnosis.
