Team "Cortex and epilepsy"
Richard Miles is leader of Cortex and Epilepsy team at the ICM. He received a MSc in 1976 and a PhD in Physiology from university of Bristol in 1981. He is scientific expert for “Fondation française pour la recherche sur l’épilepsie” since 2003.
Richard Miles’s team studies cortical function and dysfunction in focal epilepsies, developing and exploiting new techniques of stimulation and optical recording. The team then uses them in physiological and pathological situations, to stimulate specific cell types, to image lipids and ions and to perform multi-cell activity recording while modulating certain receptor function.
