Work in Epilepsy Innovation Research:
A Highlight for CIMIT Congress
A special panel presentation with three key speakers talking about work that relates to epilepsy will be featured at the CIMIT Innovation Congress 2007 slated to be held in Boston on November 14 and 15 (www.cimit.org).
According to Steven C. Schachter, MD, Director of the NeuroTechnology Program at CIMIT and Editor-in-Chief of epilepsy.com, “Our panelists will present their exciting work related to sensing and analyzing brain waves and body movements to predict and detect seizures.”
The panelists are:
Submitted: 10/29/07Reviewed by Steven C. Schachter
- Jenna Rickus, PhD, Assistant Professor, Purdue University, who designs new materials to measure, control, and mimic living cells and will discuss her work in developing hybrid-cell silicon devices as neural prostheses.
- Paolo Bonato, PhD, Assistant Professor, Harvard Medical School, who uses wearable technology in engineering solutions for assessing the biomechanics of movement to
diagnose and monitor neurological diseases that affect movement, such as seizures, and has developed intelligent signal processing tools for investigating problems in neurophysiology and neurofuzzy inference systems for the analysis of data recorded using wearable sensors.
- Leon D. Lasemidis, PhD, Associate Professor, Arizona State University, who will discuss his groundbreaking work on using algorithms based on mathematical models to predict seizure onset and on developing closed-loop electrical stimulation methods.
