Our postdoc, Michal Lech, and Ph.D. student, Cagdas Topcu, officially started their research training with our strategic partner Mayo Clinic on December 3rd after arriving to Minnesota in a heavy blizzard (Winters start early in this part of the world!). This research is based in the Mayo Systems Electrophysiology Lab led by Prof. Gregory Worrell (www.msel.mayo.edu) and will involve epilepsy patients with electrodes implanted in the brain to treat refractory seizures. For the next one year, Michal and Cagdas will be trained in the state-of-the-art technologies for brain recording and stimulation used in clinical treatment and epilepsy research at Mayo Clinic. Our goal is to use these technological innovations to improve memory and cognitive functions in these patients and then apply them to patients in Poland once they return to Gdansk.
