Dr. Stacey’s lab is dedicated to developing better implantable devices to control epilepsy, and is an active participant in the Translational Neural Engineering Group. Dr. Stacey is a clinical epileptologist and spends the majority of his time doing neural engineering research. The lab uses a combination of electrophysiology, machine learning, signal processing, and computational modeling. Data for these projects are acquired from a large database of human patients, an ongoing analysis of frequent epilepsy patients, and from rodent models of epilepsy. The lab is specifically researching the relationship of high frequency oscillations with seizure mechanisms, and developing methods to target and stimulate the brain to stop seizures. Concurrently, the lab is developing biophysical and dynamical models of epileptic activity to understand the mechanisms underlying seizures and epileptic oscillations.
