John W. Day, MD, PhD
Professor of Neurology, of Pediatrics (Genetics) and, by courtesy, of Pathology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our Neuromuscular Division coordinates a comprehensive effort to conquer peripheral nerve and muscle disorders, including the muscular dystrophies, motor neuron disorders, neuromuscular junction abnormalities, and peripheral neuropathies. With patients and families foremost in mind, we have had success defining and combating these diseases, with research focused on identifying genetic causes, developing novel treatment, and maximizing patient function by optimizing current management.
Antoine de Morree
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Neurology and Neurological Sciences
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Molecular mechanisms underlying neuromuscular disorders and the molecular regulation of satellite cell quiescence and activation in relation to normal aging.
Instructor, Neurology & Neurological Sciences
Bio Dr. DeSouza is an Instructor in the Department of Neurology and Neurological Sciences. She completed her PhD at the University of Toronto where her research focused on MRI to examine brain abnormalities and treatment-related plasticity in individuals with the chronic facial pain disorder, trigeminal neuralgia.
With her mentor, Dr. Robert Cowan, Dr. DeSouza is currently investigating the basic mechanisms and biomarkers associated with chronic daily headache subtypes using multimodal neuroimaging. In addition, she is a member of the Brain Stimulation Lab (BSL) in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. With the Director of the BSL, Dr. Nolan Williams, and mentor, Dr. David Spiegel, Dr. DeSouza is involved in investigating the effects of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation on hypnotic analgesia.
Her overall research goal is to combine multimodal neuroimaging approaches to understand the basic mechanisms and biomarkers underlying pain phenotypes and chronic pain disorders to inform individual treatment strategies.
Gayle Deutsch, PhD, ABPP
NEUROPSYCHOLOGIST, NEURODIAGNOSTICS LABS-SHC
Bio Gayle K. Deutsch, PhD, ABPP-CN, received her doctoral degree in clinical psychology at Drexel University in 1994. She completed a pre-doctoral internship at the Brain Behavior Laboratory, Department of Psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania and a post-doctoral fellowship at the Graduate Hospital in Philadelphia, PA. She is the lead neuropsychologist for the Stanford Comprehensive Epilepsy Center, Stanford Center for Memory Disorders and the Stanford Alzheimer's Disease Research Center (ADRC). She obtained board certification in Clinical Neuropsychology in 2006 and subspecialty board certification in Pediatric Clinical Neuropsychology in 2016. She is conducting research with individuals with myotonic dystrophy through the Stanford Neuromuscular Program. Dr. Deutsch is a Clinical Associate Professor (Affiliated) in the Department of Neurology and Neurological Sciences.
Les Dorfman, MD
Professor of Neurology and Neurological Sciences, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Clinical electrophysiology of the peripheral and central nervous systems, including nerve conduction velocity; electromyography (EMG); and visual, auditory and somatosensory evoked potentials. Multiple sclerosis (MS) diagnosis and treatment. Neurological education.
Lauren Drag, PhD, ABPP
Clinical Instructor (Affiliated) [SHC], Neurology
Bio Lauren Drag, PhD, is a Clinical Instructor (Affiliated) in the Department of Neurology and Neurological Sciences at Stanford University School of Medicine. She received her bachelor’s degree from Pomona College and a PhD in clinical psychology from the University of Arizona. Dr. Drag is board certified in Clinical Neuropsychology by the American Board of Professional Psychology.
She completed a clinical internship in neuropsychology at the VA Ann Arbor Medical Center and a two-year post-doctoral fellowship in neuropsychology at the University of Michigan Healthcare System. Prior to coming to Stanford, she was a researcher at the VA Palo Alto Medical Center and served as Director of the Neuropsychology Area of Emphasis at Palo Alto University. Dr. Drag’s research interests are in cognitive aging and traumatic brain injury.
Clinical Associate Professor, Neurology & Neurological Sciences
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am a general pediatric neurologist. My interest is in clinical diagnosis and treatment of common neurologic diseases in pediatric patients and teaching feature doctors, neurologists and pediatric neurologists about pediatric neurology.
