Meet the team leading the way in neuroimaging through innovative research techniques. Professor John Duncan oversees a multidisciplinary team of neurologists who are changing the lives of people with epilepsy.
Neuroimaging offers us sophisticated techniques that enable us to look deep inside the brain and can help us to understand more about a person's epilepsy and whether, in some cases, they may be suitable for epilepsy surgery. Not only does it allow us to look at the structure of the brain but it also enables us to map critical pathways which are essential for functions such as language, memory, sight and motor skills. We can see where these functions occur and whether some medications may affect them and should be avoided.
Find out how the quality of life of people with epilepsy improved as a direct result of neuroimaging and subsequent surgery.
Find out about our innovative Epilepsy Navigator software that enables even more sophisticated and accurate brain surgery for epilepsy.
Read about current research projects being carried out by our world leading neuroimaging team.
We aim to bring forward the day when epilepsy is not a hidden disability – no longer a stigma that is hidden in the shadows and misunderstood. By giving us your support, you can be part of this journey.
Genomics is an interdisciplinary field of science focusing on sequencing, analysis and interpretation of the genome or complete set of DNA of an individual.
Epidemiology helps us to look at epilepsy in the community and find out who, when and where people have developed the condition.
The Epilepsy Society Brain and Tissue Bank is the first of its kind in the UK. It is dedicated to the study of epilepsy through brain and other tissue samples.
