The research of Terrence D. Lagerlund, M.D., focuses on mathematical analysis of the electroencephalogram (EEG), especially EEG source localization as it relates to better localization of epileptic seizures, which is important for determining whether a patient is a candidate for epilepsy surgery.
Significance to patient care
If a patient's seizures can be more accurately localized during video EEG monitoring with scalp electrodes, it may lead to a better outcome during the second phase of video EEG monitoring using electrodes placed surgically on and within the brain regions suspected to be involved in seizure onset, and ultimately may lead to better outcomes of epilepsy surgery.
