Dr. Andrew Mattar is a General Neurologist, living and working in Vancouver, BC.
Prior to his medical training, he did undergraduate work at Western University, obtaining an Honor's BSc in Physiology and Psychology. His Honor's thesis was supervised by Dr. Paul Gribble, studying how motor skills can be acquired through observation.
He then went on to obtain an MSc and PhD in Psychology at McGill University, followed by post-doctoral work at Haskins Laboratories in New Haven, Connecticut, training under Dr. David Ostry. His experimental work focused on how the nervous system develops new motor skills (motor learning), and how learning in one context shapes performance in other situations (generalization of learning).
Throughout his medical training he has continued with experimental work, on diverse topics including Spinal Cord Injury, Facial and Post-Stroke Pain, Headache, and Inflammatory CNS disease.
