Our group conducts translational clinical research aimed to identify novel biomarkers of the epileptogenic zone in the brain of children with epilepsy, which can help planning epilepsy brain surgery and improving outcomes. The student's role in the project will be to: - review patients' clinical records to extract clinical information relevant to the study, identify eligible patients to include in the study and enter them into our database for statistical analysis - pre-process EEG and MRI data via pre-defined data analysis pipelines using user-friendly tool for neuroimaging data analysis - extract quantitative measures from the EEG and test their link with the underlying epileptogenicity of the brain. The student will be trained and supervised daily by the primary mentor, her postdoctoral fellow and clinical collaborators from the BCH Epilepsy Clinics

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
