Dr. Devinsky and his co-investigators are presently conducting studies of several investigational antiepileptic medications such as topiramate, tiagabine, lamotrigine, vigabatrin, oxcarbazepine, and remacemide, as well as vagal nerve stimulator implantation. The Comprehensive Epilepsy Center offers 16 inpatient video-EEG-monitored beds in a specialized Epilepsy Monitoring Unit. Each bed has the capacity for 64 channels of EEG data with on-line computer analysis for 24-hour seizure and spike detection.
Preoperative neuropsychological assessment, invasive monitoring including depth and subdural electrode studies, intraoperative electrocorticography and functional localization of language, motor and sensory areas permits precise surgical approaches to remove epileptic tissue while sparing necessary brain areas.
