Andrea Bernasconi, MD
Dr. Andrea Bernasconi is a neurologist and epileptologist specialized in Neuroimaging of Epilepsy. The overall goal of his research is to demonstrate that advanced MRI techniques lead to major improvements in the management and quality of care of patients with epilepsy who are candidates for surgical treatment. His main activity is devoted to modeling epileptogenic lesions and studying their relationship to brain structure and function. His group has developed computerized MRI analysis methods to identify neuronal migration disorders that are often undetected by conventional imaging.
