Jean-Philippe Lachaux is conducting his research on the treatment of epilepsy at the neurological clinic in Lyon in Inserm’s “Brain dynamics and Cognition” laboratory. Epilepsy is a disorder affecting one per cent of the French population. Using electrodes planted into specific brain areas of patients, neurologists are enabled to track their brain activity in real time on a TV screen. Through this brain TV they can identify epileptic foci and thus avoid damaging healthy brain cells during neurosurgery. This system stands as a major advancement in the treatment of epilepsy, for which surgery is still the most efficient approach.
