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.

FEATURED PROJECT: Network patterns of the EEG microstructure

The microstructural EEG elements and their topographies relate with many neurophysiological functions of the brain and can reveal neurological abnormalities. To reveal dysfunctional network properties of the epilepsy EEG microstructure, we develop computational tools that make use of machine learning and graph theory techniques.

Funders & collaborators

Without the generosity of people and funding bodies our research would not be possible. We acknowledge and we are very grateful to our funders and partners.
