Andrea Bernasconi, PhD
Dr. Andrea Bernasconi is a neurologist specialized in the treatment of epilepsy. His research interests are centered on the use of advanced quantitative MRI techniques such as volumetric MRI, T2 relaxometry, and MR spectroscopy to better understand the cause and mechanisms responsible for epilepsy. Dr. Bernasconi is interested in the development and application of computerized image processing techniques such as voxel-based morphometry, texture analysis and shape analysis to improve the detection of subtle brain lesions, particularly neuronal migration disorders, a frequent cause of pharmacologically intractable epilepsy which are often missed by conventional MRI.
