Research Summary

Dr. Najmi studies the effects of mental activity on the termination of epileptic-like seizures that arise after cortical stimulation. (Electrical stimulation is performed to localize motor, sensory, language, and other important brain areas.)

His work includes time-scale applications using continuous wavelets and orthogonal wavelet packets, in addition to multi-channel optimal linear filters.
