Our diagnostic services include complete neurologic evaluation, including:

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
Computerized tomography (CT)
Neuromuscular electrophysiology (EMG)
Long-term video and ambulatory EEG monitoring
Lumbar Puncture (LP)
Visual, auditory, somatosensory evoked potentials
Digital subtraction angiography, arteriography and myography, with appropriate neuroradiology support, at the Lebanon campus.

Subspecialty clinics in pediatric neurology, neuro-oncology, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, movement disorders, neuromuscular disorders, headache, stroke, epilepsy, memory and dementia are held at the Lebanon campus. Twenty-six full-time neurologists and nine residents staff the department.

Human Studies

  • Microelectrodes in Epilepsy ( Quantitative human study )

    This study involves the use of microelectrode recording in patients undergoing iEEG for surgical treatment of medically refractory epilepsy, and has two concurrent goals. One is to augment the standard iEEG recording with additional microelectrode recording which may help to identify regions of epileptogenic cortex. The second goal is to augment our ability to predict the cognitive risk of epilepsy surgery and investigate the role of the specific brain region in cognition and behavior. We utilize a commercially available, FDA approved, dual micro-macro electrode system. Our hypothesis is that such recording will elucidate specific characteristics of brain regions with epileptogenic potential, will offer novel insights into cognitive neuroscience, and help to predict neuropsychological outcomes of surgery.
