STANFORD FUNCTIONAL NEUROSURGERY PROGRAM
Research investigations of The Functional Neurosurgery Program focus on
a variety of treatments for movement-related disorders, pain, and epilepsy.
Many of the therapies available through the Program utilize the stereotactic
neurosurgical techniques developed at Stanford.
Dr. Heit's research studies current source density analysis a a method
to dissect mechanisms of epileptic propagation in human cortex, image-guided
surgery for pain, and deep brain stimulation for movement disorders.
Functional Neurosurgery staff collaborate with scientists in the Neuro-Muscular
Clinic within the Department
of Neurology and Neurological Sciences, Stanford's Pain Program, the
Epilepsy Program and Biomotion
