Biography

I am interested in understanding network involved in different forms of epilepsy. Ongoing studies in my mentor's laboratory include experiments to explore network mechanisms common to seizures and other states of impaired consciousness. In particular, we are investigating the role of cortical and subcortical structures such as the somatosensory barrel cortex and thalamus in the propagation and behavioral manifestations of seizures.
