Epilepsy Navigator software

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.

Funded by the Wellcome Trust and the Department of Health, we have developed software EpiNav™ (Epilepsy Navigator) that enables even more sophisticated and accurate brain surgery for epilepsy, which will increase the numbers of people who can become seizure free and reduce the risk of damage to language, memory, movement and vision.
