Research summarySeizure and treatment options


My research mainly focuses on the consequences of seizure activity and investigates novel therapeutic options. However, I am also interested in how electrical stimulation can conversely be used to treat neurological disorders.

Interestes include:

  • Seizure-induced cardiomyopathy and how combination therapy can be used to protect the heart and brain during seizure
  • Seizure development in Batten disease and the benefits of cannabinoid therapy
  • The use of electrical stimulation of dopaminergic reward pathway to treat tinnitus.
