Modern approaches to epilepsy surgery include neuromodulation — targeted electrical stimulation of brain tissue responsible for generating or supporting seizures. Dr. Chu started and directs the pediatric responsive neurostimulation clinic at MGH. This clinical work motivates us to better understand the mechanisms of neuromodulation in epilepsy. In collaboration with the Han and Kramer Labs we are testing the impact of neurostimulation in rodent and computational models of epilepsy to develop principled neurostimulation protocols to disrupt the mechanisms that generate seizures.
