Research

Epilepsy/Seizure research has led to milestone discoveries that make lives healthier and better. In just the last few years, our faculty have made significant strides in gaining a better understanding of neurological disorders.

Each day, as we open the doors to our epilepsy center, we see first hand the impact uncontrolled epilepsy has on patients and their loved ones. And with each passing day our commitment to understanding the underlying causes of epilepsy and advancing new epilepsy treatments grows stronger. At the NYU Comprehensive Epilepsy Center, our team of world-renowned research investigators continues the search for new treatments and answers for patients with epilepsy. Our research program emphasizes two new areas of research, one on the imaging aspects of epilepsy and the second on the novel therapeutics of treatment.
