Ο Καθ. Carsten H. Wolters του Ινστιτούτου Βιομαγνητισμού και Ανάλυσης Βιοσημάτων (Institute for Biomagnetism and Biosignalanalysis) του Πανεπιστημίου του Münster της Γερμανίας θα δώσει ομιλία με τίτλο "Targeted and intensity-optimized multi-channel transcranial electric stimulation: New methods and first applications to focal epilepsy" την Τρίτη 4 Οκτωβρίου 2022 στις 14:00 στην αίθουσα 145.Π58 στο Κτίριο Επιστημών στην Πολυτεχνειούπολη.
For drug-resistant patients with focal epilepsy, epilepsy surgery is currently the most effective treatment option. However, only a proportion of these patients are eligible for epilepsy surgery. This is either because the epileptogenic zone in the brain cannot be localized with sufficient accuracy, or because it cannot be surgically removed without significant neurological deficits. In my talk, I will present new methods of personalized medicine to improve this situation. I will focus on new methods for individualized multimodal identification of the epileptogenic zone to provide the most appropriate personalized therapy. To this end, new multimodal techniques for coupling MRI, EEG, MEG and sEEG will be presented. In addition, an individually optimized technique of transcranial brain stimulation will be discussed as a new treatment option to reduce seizure frequency and severity. The latter is particularly attractive for patients with refractory focal epilepsies for whom surgery is not an option.
Carsten H. Wolters received the diploma degree in Mathematics with a minor in Medicine from the RWTH Aachen, Aachen, Germany, the Ph.D. degree in Mathematics from the University of Leipzig, Leipzig, Germany and the Habilitation in Mathematics from the University of Münster, Münster, Germany, in 1997, 2003 and 2008, respectively. From 1997 to 2004, he was with the Max Planck Institutes for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences and Mathematics in the Sciences, Leipzig, Germany. From 01/2004 to 02/2005, he joined the Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute at the University of Utah, Salt Lake City, USA. Since 03/2005, he is a Research Associate with the Institute for Biomagnetism and Biosignalanalysis (IBB) at the University of Münster, Münster, Germany. Since 11/2008, he is heading the research group ”SIM-NEURO (Stimulation, Imaging and Modeling of NEUROnal networks in the human brain)” at the IBB. In 2017 he was awarded the title of an außerplanmäßiger Professor by the Medical Faculty of WWU.
