Dr. Dang K. Nguyen is a neurologist at the University of Montreal Health Centre. He received his medical and neurology training at the University of Montreal, and then completed an epilepsy fellowship at Yale University followed by a PhD in Neuroscience at the University of Montreal. His research focuses on novel techniques of neuroimaging (ex. near infrared spectroscopy, DTI) and neurophysiology (magnetoencephalography, invasive EEG) used to facilitate clinical diagnosis (ex. insular epilepsy), to identify biomarkers of epilepsy, and to understand the bioengineering mechanisms at work in epilepsy, with the hope of interfering with the uncontrolled electrical process. He is currently the president-elect of the Canadian League against Epilepsy.
