Yoshikazu Ugawa graduated from the University of Tokyo and received the M.D. degree in 1978. He worked as a neurologist in the University Hospital and got the Ph.D. degree in 1992 from the University of Tokyo. His main research field is clinical neurophysiology. He first studied mechanisms underlying several movement disorders including myoclonus using EEG, MEG, and evoked potentials. After 1987, he studied normal and abnormal functions of the motor systems in humans using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). From 1987 to 1990, he studied physiological mechanisms for movement disorders under Professor C.D. Marsden and Professor J.C. Rothwell in the Institute of Neurology, London. He became a Lecturer in the University of Tokyo in 1997 and moved to Fukushima University to work as the Director and Professor of Department of Neurology in 2007. He serves as an Associate Editor of Clinical Neurophysiology and as an Editorial Board Member of Movement Disorders, Brain Stimulation, Clinical Neurology (Japanese), Clinical Neurophysiology (Japanese), and Clinical Neuroscience (Japanese).
