Imaging and Epilepsy Group

Our group is at the forefront of unravelling the structural and functional abnormalities in the human brain that are associated with epilepsy and other neurological disorders.

Research interests

  • Epilepsy
  • Neuroimaging
  • Neuroinformatics
  • Brain networks and connectivity

  • Advanced neuroimaging
  • Neuroinformatics
  • EEG
  • Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS)

About our research

Our group includes several collaborating teams, each with multidisciplinary groups of scientists, capable of utilising and advancing cutting-edge neuroimaging technology to address key biological questions in health and disease.

Our research include the study of brain networks, connectivity, cognition and injury; neuroimaging analysis methods development/neuroinformatics; and clinical translation to improved patient care.
