Our physicians and scientists are devoted to conducting research that improves our understanding of the causes and treatments of neurological disorders that affect children.
We conduct research in all areas—physiology, biochemistry, basic science, and imaging—making this the most progressive program in the country. Yale School of Medicine and Yale New Haven Hospital are participating in a multi-center, FDA-approved feasibility clinical investigation of a responsive brain neurostimulator device for the treatment of epilepsy. The neurostimulator is designed to detect seizures in patients with epilepsy and to deliver mild electrical stimulation to suppress seizures before the patient has any symptoms. Yale is also part of a multi-institution consortium testing triggered deep-brain stimulation, a very new approach to treating uncontrolled epilepsy.
