Dr. Frauscher's Lab for Analytical Neurophysiology seeks to employ a variety of quantifiable tools in order to shed light on neurophysiological and pathological processes    


We are currently looking for excellent Ph.D. students and Post-Docs to join our lab see information here.


lab’s research interest


Sleep and epilepsy

 Investigation of the important interactions between sleep and epilepsy.

Seizure-independent EEG

Development of novel seizure-independent EEG markers for the epileptogenic zone in order to achieve a more accurate diagnosis of epilepsy.

Intracranial EEG to study the brain

The use of invasive intracranial EEG to study brain physiology during wakefulness and sleep in order to better delineate normal from abnormal brain activity. Our ultimate goal is to improve the care of people with epilepsy.
