Robert E. Hampson, Ph.D., is the (brain) scientist behind the science fiction for more than a dozen writers. He has assisted in the (fictional) creation of future medicine, brain computer interfaces, unusual diseases, alien intelligence, novel brain diseases (and the medical nanites to cure them), exotic toxins, and brain effects of a zombie virus. His science writing (as both Rob Hampson and under the pseudonym, Tedd Roberts) ranges from the mysteries of the brain to surviving the Apocalypse, from prosthetics to TV and movie diseases, and from the fictional depiction of real science to living in space. His recent forays into short fiction (as Tedd Roberts) include Science Fiction by Scientists (Springer), Riding the Red Horse (Castalia), and Black Tide Rising (Baen).
Dr. Hampson is a Professor of Physiology and Pharmacology with over 35 years of experience in animal and human neuroscience. His professional work includes more than 100 peer-reviewed research articles ranging from the pharmacology of memory to the effects of radiation on the brain. He is also leading a clinical team which is developing a “neural prosthetic” to restore human memory following damage due to aging, injury, or disease.
