Columbia Neurosurgery Starts Neurophysiology Lab
His new lab, the Functional and Cognitive Neurophysiology Lab, focuses on the study of human decision-making, behavior, and cognitive processes.
Directed by Dr. Sheth, the lab also employs: a postdoctoral research scientist, Elliot Smith, PhD; two neurosurgery residents, Chuck Mikell, MD and Brett Youngerman, MD; as well as several medical students and interns.
Dr. Guy M. McKhann, Florence Irving Associate Professor of Neurosurgery at Columbia University Medical Center is one of the lab’s many collaborators.
We use a combination of imaging and intracranial electrophysiology to investigate structural and functional relationships in the human brain. Neurosurgical procedures such as deep brain stimulation (DBS), epilepsy surgery, and brain tumor resection often require detailed imaging and electrophysiological recordings before, during, and after surgery. We utilize these unique opportunities to study the human brain and behavior in health and disease states. — Dr. Sameer Sheth
