Review

Thalia Harmony was born in México City, she received her medical degree as Surgeon in 1960 by the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México. She started researching at the Instituto de Estudios Médicos Biológicos (1958-1963) under the guidance of Dr. C. Guzmán Flores and Dr. A. Fernández Guardiola.

She worked in Cuba from 1963 to 1980, she was the first Doctor of Science in that country by the Centro Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas in 1969. Her researches along with Dr. Roy Jhon, developed the “Neurometric” method, this demonstrates that the quantitative analysis of the EEG and the Event Related Potentials, let to the diagnosis of different brain pathologies.

At the end of 1980 Dr. Harmony comes back to Mexico, she created the “Centro para el Estudio del Daño Cerebral” at the Universidad del Estado de México and she joins as Titular Professor at the ENEP Iztacalla of the UNAM. Here she established a research group for the evaluation of learning disorders children.

In 1997, se joined the Instituto de Neurobiología UNAM, at 2002 she started her research about the early diagnosis and intervention in infants with brain damage risk factors during the prenatal and perinatal phases. Until today she has created 4 Research Units that supports this research line: Magnetic Resonance Unit, Neurodevelopment Research Unit, Biomechanics Unit, Materno-fetal Unit. This last was jointly developed with the Hospital de Especialidades del Niño y la Mujer at Querétaro City.
