Research in the Mehta Lab aims to map functional networks in the human brain, by working with patients with epilepsy who have electrodes implanted in, or on, their brains as preparation for surgery to treat their seizures.
We use recordings from these electrodes, electrical brain stimulation, and functional MRI to study:
human brain networks in the resting state
the neural mechanisms of cognitive abilities such as attention, visual processing, and language
how to identify the brain areas involved in seizure generation
