The Neuro Team
Eliane Kobayashi is a neurologist with expertise in the field of Epilepsy. Her main interests include:
(1) genotype-phenotype correlation in familial epilepsies, to understand how the genetic basis influence the clinical presentation and structural/functional abnormalities in patients with inherited forms of epilepsy, especially temporal lobe epilepsies.
(2) application of multimodal neurophysiology, structural and functional neuroimaging for the evaluation of propagation of epileptic activity and the extent of the epileptogenic network (magnetoencephalography/magnetic source imaging, combined recording of electroencephalogram and functional magnetic resonance imaging, magnetic resonance spectroscopy.
(3) understanding the mechanisms underlying hyperexcitability in epilepsy and their relationship with seizure vulnerability and seizure intractability (using receptor binding studies with positron emission tomography, autoradiography, immunohistochemistry and gene expression studies).
