Naoum Issa, MD, PhD, University of Chicago, Dept of Neurology, will give a seminar on Wednesday, March 2nd, at 12:00 PM (noon) via Zoom. The title of his talk will be, “Cortical Plasticity and Learning During Sleep and their Disruption by Seizures.”
Naoum Issa, MD, PhD, is a neurologist specializing in the treatment of epilepsy. He works closely with patients to control their seizures and is passionate about offering advanced options for epilepsy that is resistant to anti-seizure medications.
Dr. Issa is the director of epilepsy research at the University of Chicago. His research focuses on detecting and diagnosing neurologic disorders using painless, electrophysiological techniques. He and his co-workers are developing ways to identify seizure footprints in deep brain structures without having to implant electrodes. Through collaborations with neuromuscular specialists, he is applying some of the same techniques used for seizure diagnosis to detect other neurological disorders like ALS.
Dr. Issa has published over 50 scientific papers and book chapters, and is a scientific reviewer for multiple neurology and neuroscience journals. His work has appeared in journals such as Neurology, Neuron, Nature Protocols and Journal of Neuroscience.
