Research Summary

Dr. Gerrard's research lab is focusing on understanding the neurological processes that underlie epileptogenesis, seizure activation and seizure propagation. He is also intricately involved in several translational research projects within the Epilepsy Program that aim to advance the understanding of epilepsy and movement disorders as well as the treatment of our patients.

Extensive Research Description

1) Understand the neural network processes that underlie epileptogenesis, seizure activation and propagation

2) Understand the neurological processes involved in movement disorders such as Parkinson's Disease and Essential Tremor

3) Development of intelligent brain-machine interface devices that advance the treatment of patients with neurological disorders.

Research Interests

Anatomy; Information Science; Diseases; Analytical, Diagnostic and Therapeutic Techniques and Equipment

Public Health Interests

Bioinformatics; Clinical Trials
