Professor John Milton is the William R. Kenan, Jr. chair in computational neuroscience at the Claremont McKenna College. His current research deals with the roles played by time-delayed feedback in the neural control of balance and the generation of epileptic seizures. His pedagogical efforts are focused on bringing mathematics to the bedside through the creation of cross-disciplinary teams.
He received his PhD (1975) and MDCM (1982) from McGill University. He did his internship at the Royal Victoria Hospital (1983) and then completed his neurology residency (1986) and epilepsy fellowship (1987) at the Montreal Neurological Institute. From 1989-2004 he was the co-director of the adult epilepsy program at the University of Chicago. He is a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (1986) and the American Physical Society (2006).
He has received numerous awards including the Richard Bellman prize in mathematical biosciences (1991 shared with A. Longtin). He is the section editor for Dynamical Diseases for the Encyclopedia of Computational Neuroscience and serves on the editorial advisory board of Chaos. He has more than 170 publications and has written three books: Dynamics of small neural populations (1996), Epilepsy as a dynamic disease (2003 with P. Jung) and Mathematics as a laboratory tool (2014 with T. Ohira).
