Studies are conducted by Prof.Dr. Sacit Karamürsel and Asst. Prof. Dr. Ezgi Tuna Erdoğan.

The main research interest in our laboratories is electroneurophysiology. We mainly conduct research on healthy volunteers or patients.

Our main research topics are:

– Application of tDCS (transcranial Direct Current Stimulation) for the modulation of cerebral and cerebellar cortical networks for improving cognitive and sportive abilities, treatment, and rehabilitation of stroke and headache/migraine patients.

– Motor and sensory Cortical Mapping in order to protect important cortical areas before epilepsy surgery within the framework of our joint project with Koç University School of Medicine, Department of Neurology, and University of Houston Biomedical Department. For this purpose, we develop and use HFO (High-Frequency Oscillations) analysis as well as electrical stimulation, which is the gold standard for locating important motor and sensory areas and epileptic focus.

-CCEP (Cortico Cortical Evoked Potentials) recording and analysis are also in our area of ​​interest. Inhibition of seizure activity by stimulation with tDCS or implanted cortical DCS electrodes is our secondary goal.

– We design new electrodes and develop new stimulation techniques to prevent seizure activity.

– We perform IONM (IntraOperative Neuro-Monitorization) in Critical Neurosurgery cases.
