Department of Clinical and Experimental Epilepsy
Head of Department: Professor Matthew Walker
Our mission is to transform the lives of people living with epilepsy for the better by identifying, understanding and correcting or preventing the underlying mechanisms leading to the epilepsies and associated comorbidities in each individual person.
Our vision is to build upon the excellence and breadth of our research, seamlessly integrating basic and clinical science.
Main Departmental Research Themes
- Basic Research in neurophysiology, imaging, neurogenetics, neuropharmacology and neuropathology.
- Translational Research using animal models of epilepsy, human tissue and in-vivo data from cohorts of patients with specific epilepsy syndromes.
- Clinical Research centered on: epidemiology, health service, comorbidities, genetics, neuroimaging, neurophysiology, neuropsychiatry, neuropsychology, neuropathology, epilepsy surgery and clinical trials.
