Brian Litt, MD and the Neuroscience School of Advanced Studies (NSAS) will be hosting a 5-day workshop ‘Epilepsy: Advanced Technology for Clinicians’ on the Island of San Servolo in Venice, Italy from October 5-10, 2018.
In this workshop, world clinician-experts in engineering, neuroscience and clinical neurology present the latest tools for state-of-the-art epilepsy care and present cases to demonstrate their use. By the end of the workshop attendees will learn how to apply: (1) the newest imaging and electrophysiology techniques to map brain structure and function, (2) novel tools to link imaging with intracranial electrodes, (3) new surgical techniques for focal therapy including laser, radiofrequency ablation and focused ultrasound, and (4) the newest implantable antiepileptic devices.
