We use a variety of techniques to research large scale neural networks in the context of epilepsy, sleep and cognition in our valued patient volunteers and preclinical models. Particular interests are the circuit mechanisms of sleep-wake and epilepsy interaction, the sleep-exacerbated cognitive comorbidities of epilepsy, and the neural circuits of memory in our human volunteers.
