Epilepsy Research Group

The Epilepsy Research Group investigates new diagnostic techniques for epilepsy, which also provide a better understanding of the mechanisms of how epilepsy is generated and evolves.

This includes work in clinical and experimental neurophysiology (electroencephalography or EEG and magnetoencephalography or MEG), structural and functional imaging (MRI, functional MRI, PET), cognitive sciences and neurogenetics. The surgical treatment of epilepsy now includes investigations with intracerebral electrodes in some patients and image-guided robotics-assisted surgery.
