I study basic mechanisms of how epilepsy develops using human and mouse models.
For Referring Providers:
In my laboratory, we use electrophysiological, optogenetic, and immunohistochemical techniques in order to study mechanisms of epileptogenesis using human tissue obtained during surgery and mouse models of epilepsy. I am particularly interested in studying focal cortical dysplasia. I am also interested in studying how neural stimulation, such as vagus nerve stimulation, works to stop seizures.
