Cognitive neuroimaging in epilepsy
Magnetic resonance imaging provides a powerful tool for visualising brain structure and function in the living working brain. In this project, we employ a range of MRI techniques - fMRI, connectivity, diffusion and structural imaging – to investigate the basis of the cognitive and psychological difficulties experienced by many people with epilepsy.
To identify cognitive and imaging predictors (e.g. language organisation) of surgical risk in focal epilepsy.
To identify potential neural substrates of cognitive dysfunction in epilepsy (e.g. static and dynamic brain network organisation, morphological variation).
This project will combine behavioural measures of cognitive and psychological function with imaging measures of brain structure and function to examine the bases of neuropsychological dysfunction in epilepsy, and predictors of outcomes in epilepsy.
