Dr. Phillip Vlisides, a core CCS faculty, was awarded an NIH Career Development Grant (K23) to study consciousness and cognition after surgery.
Dr. Vlisides and his team will analyze advanced neurophysiologic patterns-using electroencephalography and near-infrared spectroscopy-to better understand and predict cognitive impairment after surgery.
2017- Dr. Dinesh Pal, CCS faculty and Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology, has been awarded a new R01 from the National Institutes of Health to study the mechanistic underpinnings of the interactions between sleep homeostasis and sedation
Dr. Pal will employ sophisticated techniques including high-density EEG in rodents and multi-neuroanalyte monitoring using mass spectrometry to answer a fundamental question: if and how sedatives can provide a sleep-like state. CCS director, Dr. Mashour is a co-investigator on the grant.
