Seizure Imaging in Rat Neocortex

 

Recent work by Center Director Sonya Bahar, done with Theodore Schwartz's group in the Department of Neurological Surgery at Weill-Cornell Medical College of Cornell University, involves intrinsic optical signal imaging of epileptic activity in the rat and human cortex. Current seizure imaging experiments at the Center for Neurodynamics are being performed by graduate student Daisuke Takeshita. Daisuke is using voltage-sensitive dye imaging in order to investigate changes in synchronization during the onset, development, and termination of seizures.
