WELCOME TO THE WiNTER LAB
The Winston Neuroimaging and Translational Epilepsy Research Laboratory
Epilepsy is the commonest serious neurological disorder with a prevalence of 1% and is characterized by recurrent seizures and comorbidities such as cognitive problems. When medical treatment is unsuccessful, surgical treatment may be undertaken as potentially curative.
About the Lab
The Winston Neuroimaging and Translational Epilepsy Research Laboratory (WiNTER Lab) was founded to improve the understanding of the comorbidities of epilepsy and the diagnosis and surgical treatment of people with epilepsy primarily through neuroimaging techniques and translation into clinical practice. This has developed into employing more multimodal approaches, including robotic technology, neuropsychology, EEG and machine learning.
The lab moved to the Centre for Neuroscience Studies at Queen’s University in 2019 having previously been at the UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology in London, UK. We work closely with Kingston Health Sciences Centre District Epilepsy Centre and have active collaborations with the School of Computing at Queen’s University, as well as within and outside Canada.
