Epilepsy

The epilepsy faculty participates in diverse research efforts ranging from individual clinical projects to nationally-funded clinical and basic science trials. Specific projects include active NIH projects on plasticity after brain injury and stem cell applications in epileptic brain, early surgical treatment for refractory epilepsy, and the effects of treatment of sleep apnea in epilepsy. Other ongoing clinical investigations include research in vagus nerve stimulation in children and adults, seizure prediction and non-linear dynamics in EEG, human epileptic tissue studies, coping strategies and treatment of psychogenic nonepileptic seizures, memory outcome and functional reorganization in refractory epilepsy, and psychosocial and disability determinants in epilepsy. Active research collaborations with other departments include work with neuroradiology (including MRI, fMRI, PET and SPECT studies), neurosurgery, bioengineering, physics, psychiatry, and psychology.
