Epilepsy Lab

Research Initiatives

The lab focuses on surgical treatment of epilepsy and functional mapping for epilepsy or tumors.

Current areas of research focus on:

  • The mechanisms and pathways underlying the propagation of seizure activity
  • The cortical organization of higher cognitive functions
  • Electrical stimulation mapping in patients undergoing awake craniotomies and the use of optical imaging to localize areas of the neocortex serving specific cognitive processes
