Research overview

Over 1% of the population has epilepsy - more than 50% of these patients develop their first seizure in childhood. The aim of our work is to shed light on the mechanisms underlying human epilepsies, so we can learn how to develop better and more targeted treatments.

The Winston lab uses a neurophysiological and cognitive neuroscience experimental approach to understanding epilepsy. We develop and test experimental paradigms, and use both structural and functional MRI to investigate epilepsy and direct cortical stimulation, visceral sensory processing and the cognitive neuroscience of exteroceptive modalities.
