"Impact of Seizures in Memory Performance on a NHP Model of Temporal Lobe Epilepsy"
Annaelle Devergnas, Ph.D.
Associate Professor Department of Neurology
Annaelle Devergnas is an Associate Professor in the Department of Neurology of Emory University and works at the Yerkes National Primate Center. She is an electrophysiologist expert with additional training in cognitive neurology. She obtained her PhD in France under the direction of Professor AL Benabid. During her PhD, she studied the implication of the basal ganglia in focal motor seizure on a non-human primate model. In 2009, she joined Pr. T Wichmann lab at Emory University to study the relationship between oscillatory activity and parkinsonism in a progressive model of MPTP treated monkeys. Recently, she became the director of the Neuromodulation lab at Yerkes which focuses on electrophysiological pathway of seizures and new treatment for epilepsy.
