    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

    Antoine de Morree

    Instructor, Neurology & 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.

  • Danielle DeSouza

    Danielle DeSouza

    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.

    Dr. DeSouza is a Co-Director for the Neuroscience, Behavior, and Cognition (NBC) Scholarly Concentration, part of a required structured program of study in the medical student curriculum that promotes in depth learning and scholarship in this field. She is also a lecturer for the course ANES 215, a required course in the Department of Anesthesia for medical students enrolled in the NBC Scholarly Concentration.
