François DUBEAU

Dr. François Dubeau is an Associate Professor of Neurology and Neurosurgery at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital of McGill University.  A neurologist specializing in epilepsy research and treatment. He obtained his M.D. (1978) from the Université de Montréal where he went on to complete his residency training in Internal Medicine (1982) and Neurology (1985).  He came to the Montreal Neurological Institute (MNI) between 1985 and 1988 for a fellowship of 3 years in electroencephalography, clinical epileptology and neuropharmacology. In collaboration with Jean Gotman, PhD, he is using innovative methods, EEG-fMRI and source localization EEG analysis, to bridge the gap between electrophysiology and imaging, and between the epilepsy and the lesion.  Also, using the advantages of intracerebral EEG, we are looking for biomarkers of the epileptogenic zone, and in particular the value of HFOs in defining the epileptic focus.
