Research and teaching
Dr. Federico has an active research programme focusing on functional and structural imaging of epilepsy directed at understanding how focal seizures are generated and how they affect the brain. His imaging studies include the study of cortical and subcortical circuits underlying the generation of interictal discharges, functional MRI analysis of the pre-ictal state, language and motor reorganization in focal epilepsy, and seizure-related structural brain changes using T2 relaxometry. He also has an interest in advanced EEG analytical techniques, including the study of high frequency oscillations in humans and animal models of epilepsy.
