Dr. Tony Nader received his M.D. degree from the American University of Beirut, where he also studied internal medicine and psychiatry. His Ph.D. is in the area of Brain and Cognitive Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Dr. Nader's desire to gain total understanding of the human mind and body – of consciousness and physiology – led him to the study of Maharishi's Vedic Science and Technology under the guidance of His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
On the basis of his knowledge of physiology, Dr. Nader has successfully correlated each aspect of the Vedic Literature to a specific area of physiology, with the conclusion that human physiology is the expression of Veda and the Vedic Literature. This is the subject of both his books, Human Physiology: Expression of Veda and the Vedic Literature, and Ramayan in Human Physiology.
