Welcome to the functional and structural neuro-imaging and
intra-cranial electrophysiology lab in the neurological surgery
department at the University of Texas Medical School at Houston.
This lab focuses on the study of cognitive functions using imaging
and invasive electrophysiology. We are particularly interested in higher
cognitive functions, including language, memory and executive control.
We study these processes in normal humans and in patients undergoing
resection for epilepsy or brain tumors. Diffusion tractography,
functional MRI and behavioral testing are carried out prior to and
after resections. In many patients, we also study cortical processes
using intracranial electro-physiologic techniques. These
electrocortico-graphic and cortical stimulation data are also compared
with the functional and structural imaging data to better delineate the
network underlying these disseminated cognitive operations.
