Key areas of focus: movement disorders, epilepsy, neuromodulation
As the Director of Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery in the Department of Neurosurgery, Dr. Ojemann specializes in the surgical treatment of movement disorders and epilepsy. His research interests in these areas include investigations into human electrophysiology related to movement, speech, and language, Robot-assisted stereoencephalography, and advanced imaging of targets for Deep Brain Stimulator implantation. He has led the surgical effort at the University of Colorado on two multi-center trials of intracranial infusions of gene therapies for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease. In collaboration with Dr. John Thompson, a computational neuroscientist within the Department of Neurosurgery, Dr. Ojemann contributes to significant advances in the understanding of the human brain made possible by the multi-site consortium focused on human single-neuron recordings.
