    17. 23. Bio <ul><li>Brian Litt received the A.B. degree in engineering and applied science from Harvard University in 1982 and the M.D. degree from Johns Hopkins University in 1986. Residency in Neurology, Johns Hopkins University, 1988–1991. Neurology Faculty, Johns Hopkins Hospital, 1991–1996. Neurology/Biomedical Engineering Faculty, Emory University/Georgia Institute of Technology 1997–1999. Dr. Litt is an Associate Professor of Neurology; Associate Professor of Bioengineering, and Director, EEG Laboratory at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. His scientific research is focused on his clinical work as a Neurologist specializing in the care and treatment of individuals with epilepsy. It encompasses a number of related projects: 1) automated implantable devices for the treatment of epilepsy, 2) seizure prediction: developing an engineering model of how seizures are generated and spread in human epilepsy, 3) localization of seizures in extratemporal epilepsy, 5) Translation of computational neuroscience into clinical application, and 4) minimally invasive tools for acquisition and display of high fidelity electrophysiologic recording. </li></ul>
