Professor of Neurosurgery, Neurology, and Bioengineering
Director, University of Pennsylvania Epilepsy Center Attending Neurologist
Brian’s laboratory focuses on translating NeuroEngineering research directly into patient care through a collaboration between Neurology, Neurosurgery, Neuroscience, Psychology, and Engineering. While epilepsy is the lab’s core focus, its multidisciplinary efforts span a variety of scientific and clinical interests including functional neurosurgery, network and computational neuroscience, movement disorders, intra-operative and ICU monitoring, and other brain network disorders. Specific areas of focus include automated implantable devices, understanding how seizures begin and spread, interpreting multi-scale neurosignals through machine learning, mapping functional networks and circuits in human brain, recording oscillations and modulating them via computer controlled electrical stimulation, and novel electronics technology for high fidelity electrophysiologic recording and brain modulation Dr. Litt is active as an active clinician, medical entrepreneur and inventor.
