Research & Publications
Dr. Mark R. Bower joined the Yale Neurosurgery Department as an Assistant Professor Adjunct in 2016. His research focuses on the neural basis of epilepsy: How groups of neurons participate in the initiation, recruitment, expression and reactivation of seizure-related activity. Dr. Bower completed his doctoral work with Dr. Bruce McNaughton at the U. of Arizona, where he showed that the neural encoding of repeated sub-sequences in spatial trajectories in rats depended on the methods used to teach the sequence, solving the "lumper vs. splitter" controversy (Bower et al., 2006).
