Associate Professor Jim Lagopoulos
Associate Professor in Neuroimaging
My research focus lies in the area of neuroimaging. Of particular interest is the interaction between prefrontal cortex and subcortical substrates in the regulation of emotion and how these networks are specialised for the detection of behaviourally relevant stimuli. In the area of neurophysiology, I have focussed on intraoperative techniques including electrocorticography in the planning of epilepsy surgery as well as techniques for mapping brain function during surgery for the resection of brain and spinal cord tumours.
