Areas of interest: Epilepsy and brain oscillations

This research group is interested in understanding the link between pathological oscillations and epilepsy. They have been studying the anatomical reorganization and the changes in neuronal excitability that take place in the limbic system after a brain insult. Since the epileptic brain presents major alterations in the network excitability, why is the epileptic brain not constantly seizing? What are the cellular and network alterations that give rise to epileptiform paroxysms? In which structures do these changes take place? How easily is to foresee these alterations? Once a seizure is detected, how can one abort its progression before the behavioral manifestation? These are some of the general questions with which this group is currently involved. Their major goal is the improvement of the quality of life of people with epilepsy and to unravel the mechanisms related to seizure generation in order to open new venues for symptomatological (seizure) treatments and even for the cure of the epileptic syndromes.
