    Paul Buckmaster, DVM, PhD

    Professor of Comparative Medicine and of Neurology

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Mechanisms of epilepsy, especially temporal lobe epilepsy.

  • Marion S. Buckwalter, MD, PhD

    Marion S. Buckwalter, MD, PhD

    Associate Professor of Neurology and of Neurosurgery at the Stanford University Medical Center

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests The goal of the Buckwalter Lab is to improve how people recover after a stroke. We use basic research to understand the cells, proteins, and genes that lead to successful recovery of function, and also how complications develop that impact quality of life after stroke. Ongoing projects are focused on understanding how inflammatory responses are regulated after a stroke and how to make recovery faster and better after stroke.

  • S. Charles Cho, MD

    S. Charles Cho, MD

    Clinical Professor, Neurology & Neurological Sciences

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Clinical research focused on peripheral nerve and muscle disorders. Also involved with prevention of cerebrovascular disesase in the intraoperative setting. Ongoing clincial studies include treatments for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Inflammatory Demyelinating Neuropathy and HIV neuropathic pain.

  • Robert Cowan, MD, FAAN

    Robert Cowan, MD, FAAN

    Clinical Professor, Neurology & Neurological Sciences

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Current interest focus on patient education technology and patient/physician communication with a particular emphasis on tools which increase encounter efficiency and improve outcomes. Basic research focuses on mechanisms of action in Chronic Daily Headache, with a particular emphasis on New Daily Persistent Headache. Techniques include fMRI, biomarker investigation and evoked potentials. Clinical research includes clinical trials of novel treatments for episodic and chronic headache forms.

  • John W. Day, MD, PhD

    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.
