Research Interests

Mechanisms of epilepsy: Studies of the effects of amygdala kindling on fear conditioning in rodents utilize the kindling model of epilepsy to understand the alteration in emotional behavior in the interictal period frequently observed in some patients with epilepsy.

Studies of the distribution of anticonvulsants in the brain examine the neuroanatomic specificity of anticonvulsant drug action.

Studies of the neuroprotective action of anticonvulsants are searching for non-toxic agents with multiple actions that both provide protection from seizures and reduce the neuronal loss that may occur as a result of seizures.

Human studies of the distribution of epileptic activity and eloquent areas in the brain utilize various source localization procedures to minimize functional impairment.
