Human electrophysiology of movement disorders
We study human electrophysiology of the basal ganglia and cortical circuits in movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, dystonia and tremor. The main approaches we use are: 1) intraoperative recordings to improve understanding of motor networks and deep brain stimulation (DBS) mechanisms, 2) scalp EEG to study chronic disease processes and treatment outcomes; 3) wearable devices for improving DBS delivery.
We are seeking highly motivated graduate students and postdocs with engineering, computational, or neuroscience experience. Undergraduate and medical students, residents and fellows are also welcome to join our projects.
