Vernon M Neppe MD, PhD, FRSSAf, DFAPA.
How does one portray relevant information about oneself on a site such as this? it's certainly pertinent to know more about one's colleagues. This is particularly so if there could, in the future, be any possible collaborations, trust, sharing, influences, ideas, new directions or leadership involved.
Consequently, may I present to you a little about me? My approach here is to endeavor to maintain some objectivity in a very subjective area. Consequently, I've chosen to relate pertinent information derived from several published or Internet sources.
General Scientific Background:
Vernon M. Neppe: MD, PhD(Med), FRSSAf (Foreign), DFAPA, BN&NP (UCNS), FFPsych(SA), MMed (Psych), MB, BCh, DPM , Dip ABPN (Psych), Certif. ABPN Geriatric Psych, Certif. ABPN Forensic Psych (-04), BA, FAPA, DABFE, FACFE, DABFM, DABPS (Psychopharmacology), FRCPC-10, is Director and President of the Pacific Neuropsychiatric Institute (PNI). He practices medicine in Washington state, USA. He is Board Certified in Behavioral Neurology and Neuropsychiatry (UCNS), in psychiatry and geriatric psychiatry (ABPN), and also has an overseas specialist qualification with majors in Psychiatry and Neurology (DPM).
Broader professional recognitions:
Vernon is apparently the only medical specialist listed in as many as five different medical subspecialties or specialties in the peer-selected book Castle Connolly’s "America's Top Doctors". This is as a Neuropsychiatrist and Behavioral Neurologist plus as a Psychopharmacologist (author of the booksInnovative Psychopharmacotherapy on the subject for colleagues, and Cry the Beloved Mind: A Voyage of Hope for the general public), as a Forensic Specialist (namely, variably Forensic Neuropsychiatry or Forensic Psychiatry) (author of the e-book, How Attorneys Can Best Utilize Their Medical Expert Witness: A Medical Expert's Perspective) and as a Psychiatrist. He has been listed in all editions of this book "America's Top Doctors" (2000-2010). Prior to that, he was listed in all editions of the other peer-selected book, namely Woodward White’sThe Best Doctors in America. Besides being an author, he is also a playwright (latest play Quakes). He is unofficially a philosopher (with his detailed model —2 books being completed—with Ed Close PhD, called Triadic Dimensional-Distinction Vortical Paradigm). He is an internationally sought-after professional speaker, consults on computer Internet Security, and is completing a book on nutritional supplementation. Vernon's other major area of study is consciousness and phenomenology in both the neuroscience and biopsychophysical context.
Historically relevant information:
Dr Neppe is regarded as the world's leading authority on the déjà vu phenomenon: His phenomenological classic,The Psychology of Déjà Vu (1983) was the first scientific book in the area and this has been followed by a trilogy of books in 2006, namely Déjà Vu Revisited, Déjà Vu: A Second Look, and Déjà Vu: Glossary and Library.
In 1986, Professor Neppe established (and became Director of) the first Division of Neuropsychiatry in a Department of Psychiatry in the United States (at the University of Washington in Seattle). His major current academic university affiliation reflects the unusual special honor of being an (adjunct full) Professor, Dept of Neurology and Psychiatry (and prior to that of Psychiatry and Human Behavior) at St Louis University, St Louis, MO (1700 miles away). He is also an attending physician at Overlake Hospital, Bellevue, WA.
He founded the PNI in Seattle, WA in late 1992. The PNI aims at serving as an international model in the discipline of Behavioral Neurology and Neuropsychiatry with clinical, academic, research, forensic and educational emphases. Prior to that, he had trained and worked at the University of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa (medical degree, internship, specialist post-graduate training and as a consultant attending then senior consultant). He was also honored as the Witwatersrand University Overseas Traveling Fellow for 1982-3 and worked at Cornell University Medical College, New York where he consolidated his psychopharmacology, chronobiology and sleep-wake disorders, epileptology, geriatric and neuropsychological experience.
Major international recognitions include Vernon being apparently the first physician living in the United States to be elected to Fellowship of the Royal Society of South Africa (Foreign Fellow, 2002), being elected a Distinguished Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association, leading the first international (and USA) delegation in Neuropsychiatry and Psychopharmacology (to China People to People Ambassador program, 2006) and being selected to lead the first US and International Delegation in Behavioral Neurology and Neuropharmacology (but the recession caused its cancellation). He was also elected Diplomate (also Senior Research Fellow) of the International Society for Philosophical Enquiry (ISPE - www.thethousand.com) (also Social Network Administrator of this society plus Elections officer) and, and is Executive Director of the Exceptional Creative Achievement Organization (www.5eca.com).
He is a fellow or above of seven and member of fourteen professional associations (including the American or International Psychiatric, Medical, Neuropsychiatric, Epilepsy, Psychogeriatric, Psychopharmacological and Psychological Associations and Societies). His Consultancies have included the Epilepsy Institute in New York, the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual III, IV and IV-R, and serving as psychopharmacological consultant for the latest Wechsler intelligence and memory scales (WAIS-4, WMS-4).
Other background information:
Amongst his other current special honors are current listings in the books "Marquis Who's Who in the World" and as one of "The Leading Physicians of the World". He was recognized inMen of Achievement,Five Thousand Personalities of the World, Two Thousand Notable American Men,Five Hundred Leaders of Influence,America's Top Psychiatrists andBest in the US. Listings also include International Man of the Year 1992-3 "in recognition of his services to Neuropsychiatry, Psychopharmacology and Anomalistic Psychology", Millennium Medal of Honor and Great Minds of the 21st Century.
Publications and presentations:
Dr Neppe is an internationally sought after lecturer and has made more than a thousand scientific presentations in eleven countries including chairing international conferences on four continents and radio and television appearances around the world. He has lectured at about 90% of the medical schools and hospital/ clinic affiliates in the USA and Canada.
Vernon has extensive scientific publications (including abstracts and internet, well over three hundred; on every habitable continent).He is author of seven books, served as founding editor of a journal, guest editor of another, and on the editorial boards of numerous others. His book, Cry the Beloved Mind: A Voyage of Hope, written for the general public, patients and family members, as well as colleagues in the medical, pharmaceutical, psychological and legal professions, has been perceived as a major contribution and a classic, defining as it does, the new literary genre of "sciction".
Professor Neppe has pioneered research in five distinct areas: neuropsychiatry, neurpsychopharmacologiy, paradigmatic change, phenomenology and consciousness studies.
Dr Neppe has developed several measuring neuropsychiatric instruments, inventories and historical screens which are currently in varying stages of development. These include the BROCAS SCAN (Screening Cerebral Assessment of Neppe), The INSET (Inventory of Neppe of Symptoms of Epilepsy and the Temporal Lobe), the STRAW (the first time / severity measure for tardive dyskinesia), a geriatric inpatient instrument namely the PBRS (with JP Loebel) (The Problem Behaviors Rating Scale), the Neppe Psychological Screen Questionnaire (NPSQ) (in his WAIS consultancy), the NEQ (Neppe Eating Questionnaire) and Narcolepsy Questionnaire, as well as research Subjective Paranormal Questionnaires. He has also described new medical terms, new medical conditions, new medical classifications, and the distinguishing criteria of several nosological categories.
Prof. Nepe's pharmacological areas include demonstrating the value of anticonvulsant drugs in psychiatry: He was recognized internationally as one of three major pioneers of this whole area of research that continues to impact on the lives of millions; use of high dose buspirone as the only consistently successful treatment for the previously incurable tardive dyskinesia; and the extended use of azapirones in aggression and attention deficit disorder. He has also developed pharmacologically relevant concepts in medical areas such as deinduction, non-vertiginous dizziness, dysproccia, chindling and possible temporal lobe symptoms.
Dr Neppe's magnum opus is an ongoing project. With Dr Ed Close, he has developed a new "theory of everything", a paradigm called the Triadic Dimensional-Distinction Vortical Paradigm: The N-Dimensionometric CST Matrix Entropic-extropic Mathematicologic LFAF Model: An integrated space, time and “consciousness” matrix reflecting event-horizon, warping-N-dimensional extrapolation, extent-content-intent distinctional-C-matrix open-closed, holistic-unified, finite-infinite biopsychophysical reality (TDVP). This has been a labor of a quarter of a century and was privately released for peer-review in February 2011, and two scientific books are in process at present.
Consciousness research activities
A significant proportion of Dr Neppe's consciousness research activities have been in the areas relating to a consciousness research, parapsychological research, anomalistic psychology, dimensional biopsychophysics, dilemmas of nonlocality versus time and space, phenomenology, and neuroscience and psi phenomenology.
Vernon has a wide variety of interests in scientific consciousness research and has published, inter alia, on developing pertinent models, phenomenology, neuroscience and subjective experience, approaches to research methodology, spontaneous events, terminology, classifications, survival, déjàvu, theory, models, classifications, psychopathology, organic brain elements, OBEs and NDEs. He is actively involved in research including precognition. He is particularly interested in developing the interests in consciousness research of scientists outside the discipline and with assisting less experienced faculty. Much of his previous leadership has been directed in that direction.

Theory and Research
• Pioneered the area of anomalistic psychology in the context of phenomenology and detailed examinations of data using déjà vu, the temporal lobe, SPE, olfactory hallucinations and out-of-body experiences as examples.
• Developed a model for out of body experience classification and the multi-axial phenomenological approach.
• Demonstrated the links of SPE and the temporal lobe of the brain.
• Examined the links of psychopathology and psi.
• Methodology of categorizing SPE -- low-score and high score.
• Questionnaires include INSET, Neppe SPQ, Neppe BPQ
• Development of a multi-axial classification system for anomalous experiences—previously NAMES: now the SEATTLE (Subjective Experience of Anomalous Trait Type Levels Evaluation).
• NEASTS. NEASTS (Neppe Evaluation of Anomalous Subjective Type Scale) includes SEASTS (Screening EASTS) , BEASTS (Brief EASTS), DEASTS (Detailed EASTS)
• Described the condition of Subjective Paranormal Experience Psychosis (SPE Psychosis).
• Demonstrated the phenomenological separation of Subjective Paranormal Experience (SPE) Déjà Vu from other forms, such as Associative Déjà Vu, Temporal Lobe Epileptic Déjà Vu and Schizophrenic Déjà Vu, implying that these may have different origins
• Examined the genetic links of psi and seizure disorders.
• Pioneered a multi-etiological phenomenological model for out-of-body experiences.
• TDVP model. This involves a new model for reality. This include psi (in process; under review; 2 books).
Suggested a new multi-axial classification of anomalous experiences.
