Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interests involve the epidemiology, treatment and diagnosis of pediatric and young adult brain tumors. I am also interested in long-term neurologic effects and designing clinical trials to treat brain and spinal cord tumors.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests In our research, we use intracranial recordings in conscious human subjects who are undergoing clinical monitoring for the treatment of drug-resistant epilepsy. We use electrocorticography, electrical brain perturbation, and fMRI to study the neural basis of human behavior and cognition. Our main interest lies in the system level study of electrophysiological brain activity and its contribution to human behavior and cognition and how that might be broken during epileptic seizures.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interests include the development, validation and application of functional and structural Neuroimaging techniques to be used as biomarkers for the diagnosis and treatment of movement disorders, such as Parkinsons disease.
Edward F. and Irene Thiele Pimley Professor in Neurology and the Neurological Sciences
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Experiments examine
1)intrinsic properties of neuronal membranes; actions of neurotransmitters that regulate neocortical and thalamic excitability
2) chronic epileptogenesis following cortical injury; changes in intracortical connectivity and receptors;
3) effects of early injury and activity on cortical development/maldevelopment Electrophysiological, anatomical and pharmacological techniques employed.
4. prophylaxis of postraumatic epilepsy
5. Neocortical interneuronal function/modulation
