This MEGIN Masterclass webinar presented by Dr Stefan Rampp, discusses, "In recent years, a range of novel MEG markers have been identified, which may be applied for focus localization for epilepsy surgery. Ranging from oscillatory activity in slow and fast frequency ranges to network measures, they go beyond the conventional interictal epileptic discharges and ictal rhythms which are the basis of current MEG focus localization. Correspondingly, these markers may offer alternatives especially in patients with seemingly normal MEG data. The Masterclass will provide an overview of current evidence and research and illustrate their potential use in case examples."
PD Dr. med. Stefan Rampp studied medicine at the University Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany, where he graduated in 2004. He completed his doctoral thesis in 2006. From 2004 to 2014, he worked at the Epilepsy Center, Department of Neurology and at the Department of Neurosurgery, University Hospital Erlangen, Germany since 2015. In 2006, he also joined the Department of Neurosurgery, University Hospital Halle (Saale), Germany. In May 2016, he completed his habilitation thesis in experimental neurosurgery. In June 2023, he accepted a position at the Department of Neuroradiology, University Hospital Erlangen, as part of the DFG-funded Collaborative Research Center (CRC) “Exploring Brain Mechanics”. He is currently the chair of the MEG lab of the University Hospital Erlangen, Germany.
His research includes diverse topics, such as MEG, surface and invasive EEG, as well as MRI analysis and postprocessing for epileptic focus localization, functional mapping and neurocognitive research. Further areas of interest are intraoperative monitoring, biosignal analysis and software development.
