Dr. John Rolston is a neurosurgeon and neuroscientist at Brigham & Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School. Clinically, he specializes in epilepsy surgery, deep brain stimulation (DBS) for movement disorders (Parkinson's, dystonia, tremor), trigeminal neuralgia, and neuromodulation for psychiatric disorders (such as depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and Tourette syndrome). His research investigates how intracranial recordings from single neurons and populations of cells can be used to understand these neurological diseases better. These electrophysiological recordings are coupled with electrical stimulation and advanced neuroimaging to rewire aberrant neural circuits.

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.
