Supporting epilepsy research

The Richardson Lab, headed by Professor Mark Richardson, comprises a team of epilepsy researchers from several different disciplines, including neurology, psychology, engineering and physics. We study the brain as an entire functioning system, rather than studying small components of the brain.

Our projects

In order to study the brain as an entire functioning system, we use brain scanning techniques (especially MRI) and electroencephalography (EEG, a method to record electrical activity from the brain), as well as transcranial magnetic brain stimulation (TMS). We are especially interested to create simplified models of the brain using computers, which can provide important insights into the workings of the highly complex brain.

Visitor programme

As part of our ongoing research in the field of epilepsy we have funds available to enable academic visits to King’s College London and the University of Exeter for periods of up to 6 months. We currently welcome applications from individuals at all career stages – from PhD students through to Professors looking to spend a sabbatical with us.
