Epilepsy Programme

Dr. François Dubeau is a neurologist who examines patients with intractable epilepsy. He uses depth electrodes to determine epileptogenic foci that cannot be found by surface electroencephalography. He also studies neuronal migration defects, particularly nodular periventricular heterotopia and uses data derived from EEG and from electrocorticography to study neuronal migration disorders. He is compiling a data base drawing on more than 20 years of patient examination.
