Synchronization in Seizures and Tracking Targets

Bahar describes her work imaging seizures in the neocortex of rats. Using fluorescent dyes, Bahar and her graduate assistants measure the level of electrical synchronization between different areas of the brain. Her lab also researches “synchronization between eye movements and movement of a target” in both healthy and brain-injured subjects.
