Hai lands NIH grant to use new brain sensors to study epileptic seizures

Epilepsy devastates the nervous system by triggering changes in different anatomical regions and functional processes across the entire brain. These changes are collectively implicated in the degradation of cognition, but their emergence and progression are not easily traced.

Through a new four-year, $700,000 grant from the National Institutes of Health, Aviad Hai, an assistant professor of biomedical engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and his team will leverage their newly developed brain imaging sensors and apply them to study the cross-regional manifestations of brain seizures in epilepsy.
