Dr Ladbon-Bernasconi, MD PhD is a Neuroscientist specialized in Neuroimaging of Epilepsy.  She is co-founder of the Neuroimaging of Epilepsy Laboratory (NOEL).

Overall, the goal of her work is to demonstrate that combining multimodal high-field MRI with statistical modeling provides a comprehensive view of the biological basis of epilepsy.

Using computational neuroanatomy, her team furthers the understanding of various syndromes, particularly those involving the limbic system, through the design and application of methods aimed at assessing the impact of seizures on brain plasticity, connectivity, and cognition.
