Wake Forest School of Medicine, United States
I am a neuroscientist with an extensive background in electrophysiological and cellular/molecular research.
I am the Research Director of Magnetoencephalography (MEG) at WFUSOM. In this role I foster new research activity, and helped build a successful clinical service line for assessment of epilepsy patients prior to surgical intervention. Relevant to this proposal,I have served as subcontract investigator for a neuroimaging study through VA as part of the CENC consortium using Magnetoencephalography to determine imaging functional biomarkers for predicting outcomes after mild traumatic brain injury in combat (Rowland et al., 2017a). I have collaborated with Dr. James Daunais for many years on the monkey ethanol self-administration model and am part of a team applying MEG to map brain function in nonhuman primate brain (Wilson et al., 2009; Rowland et al., 2017b). My history in electrophysiology, neuroimaging NHP work and specifically MEG has prepared me to execute the aims of the current proposal. My funded research includes NIAAA R01 AA016852 (Godwin PI) to determine the basis for changes in membrane excitability leading to alcohol withdrawal seizure, and to define the networks involved. A second award, R21NS116519-01A1 (Godwin/Klorig) Evaluates gene therapy approaches to control seizures in models of epilepsy.
I do not have any relevant financial / non-financial relationships with any proprietary interests.
