The Neuro Team
Frederick Andermann, MD, Coordinator
Dr. Frederick Andermann studies epilepsy, its causes and treatment. He has delineated several epileptic syndromes that stem from neuronal migration defects. A subject of great interest is chronic encephalitis or Rasmussen's syndrome, a disease first described at The Neuro. He is also studying behavioural changes such as psychosis that occur in some people with epilepsy. This is an important aspect of the management of epilepsy. Dr. Andermann continues as well to develop new strategies for the surgical treatment of epilepsy. Increased understanding of the causes of partial or focal epilepsy has come from the application of advanced imaging techniques that were developed at The Neuro.
