Research Summary:

Dr. Gunduz's research is focused on finding precursors to behavior and aftereffects of stimulation in neural networks through electrophysiology and bioimaging. Her lab aims to translate this knowledge into clinical diagnostic and therapeutic systems to improve quality of life of those suffering from neurological disorders. To this end, Dr. Gunduz works with many clinical populations, such as neurosurgical patients with epilepsy and movement disorders (Tourette’s syndrome, Parkinson’s Disease), as well as stroke patients undergoing neurorehabilitation.
