Imaging and Epilepsy
The Imaging and Epilepsy group is at the forefront of unravelling the structural and functional abnormalities in the human brain that are associated with epilepsy and other neurological disorders. The group includes several collaborating laboratories, each with multidisciplinary teams of scientists, capable of utilising and advancing cutting-edge neuroimaging technology to address key biological questions in health and disease. Major areas of research include the study of brain networks, connectivity, cognition and injury; neuroimaging analysis methods development / neuroinformatics; and clinical translation to improved patient care.

The Florey's Epilepsy division is a world-leading centre for epilepsy research. The division has major groups at both the Florey’s Austin and Parkville campus. The group studies mechanisms that cause epilepsy from the level of cells to the function of the whole brain. We use technologies including advanced MRI and cutting edge cellular physiology techniques to allow us to understand genetic and acquired mechanisms that give rise to epilepsy. Together with our colleagues from The University of Melbourne and across Australia we are working towards finding a cure for epilepsy.
