Rice Students Aim To Help Patients With Intractable Epilepsy Through Neurostimulator Implants
Rice University engineering students are charged with analyzing the massive stream of data from a single brain to find early signs of an epileptic seizure.
The students who call themselves the Pre-ictal Predictors are working with doctors at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) and Memorial Hermann Hospital as part of a multiyear project. The ultimate goal is to provide patients with intractable epilepsy with neurostimulator implants that sense signs of a seizure during the pre-ictal phase — the time before the seizure happens — and stop it before it begins.
