MGH Neurology Grand Rounds: Basic, Translational and Clinical Neuromodulation in Epilepsy and Beyond

Mar 28, 2024

Sydney S. Cash, MD, PhD, Co-Director of the MGH CNTR, presents at the MGH Neurology Grand Rounds

On March 28th, 2024, Professor Sydney S. Cash, MD, PhD, presented at the MGH Neurology Grand Rounds. Prof. Cash, the Co-Director of the MGH Center for Neurotechnology and Neurorecovery, delved into his research on "Basic, Translational and Clinical Neuromodulation in Epilepsy and Beyond."


Sydney Cash, MD, PhD, is a Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School and the Clinical Neurophysiology Division Chief in the MGH Department of Neurology. Prof. Cash also directs the Cash Lab and is the co-directs of the Center for Neurotechnology and Neurorecovery. Dr. Cash received his BS in Biology from Yale College before going on to pursue an MD and PhD at Columbia University. Following internship and residency in Neurology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital, Dr. Cash completed a fellowship in epilepsy and neurophysiology at Massachusetts General Hospital. Dr. Cash's research focuses on understanding the mechanisms underlying both normal and pathological cortical activity and developing novel neuroprosthetic approaches for treating a wide variety of neurological problems. This work, funded by NIH, DOD, NSF and foundation grants, has melded issues spanning basic neuroscientific questions of the physiology that underlie normal oscillatory activity, sleep and cognition, to issues surrounding how the brain transitions from one state to another including from normal activity to seizure activity and how seizures can be localized and treated - especially using neuromodulatory techniques.
