Dr David Carmichael has been awarded the CNT young UCL investigator of the year
25 August 2010
David Carmichael has won the 2009 UCL Centre for Neuroimaging Techniques Investigator of the Year award, in recognition of his work recording electrical data from the brain whilst performing Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).
Dr Carmichael said: “My work has been focused on trying to
record electrical activity directly from the human brain (intracranial
EEG) while at the same time performing functional Magnetic Resonance
Imaging (fMRI). However, recording intracranial EEG in the MRI scanner
presents a number of challenges, the most important being patient
“This kind of scanning is only possible in human epilepsy
patients who don’t respond to drugs, because they sometimes have
electrodes implanted in their brains to locate
the epileptic and eloquent (talking/walking) parts of their brain to decide if surgery might be an effective treatment.”
