The Department of Neurology will present a Grand Rounds from 8 to 9 a.m. on Thursday, January 16, in Schwitalla Hall, Lecture Hall 1
R. Edward Hogan, M.D., Director, Adult Epilepsy Center, Professor, Department of Neurology, Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, MO will present "Correlating SPECT and EEG for Localizing Epileptic Seizures"
Hogan is a professor in the Department of Neurology at Washington University in St. Louis, and the Director of the Comprehensive Epilepsy Center at Barnes Jewish Hospital.
He earned his medical degree from the University of Missouri-Columbia. He completed a neurology residency at Case Western Reserve University and a fellowship in epilepsy at the Case Western Reserve University/The Royal Melbourne Hospital; Melbourne Exchange Fellowship in Epilepsy.
He is board-certified in neurology, epilepsy, and neurophysiology.
Hogan has research interests in multiple different areas of clinical neurology and epilepsy, including the pharmacology and clinical use of antiepileptic medications, semiology of epileptic seizures, and neuro-imaging changes in patients with epileptic seizures. Research interests in neuro-imaging involve single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), as well as functional and structural MRI, including correlation of neuroimaging with clinical semiology of seizures and EEG findings. Goals of his research interests include an improved understanding of the pathophysiology of epileptic seizures to improve both the medical and surgical treatment of epileptic seizures.
