Postdoctoral fellow in AI, real time signal processing and software for real time epilepsy prediction/forecasting for closed loop neuromodulation by focal Cooling.
To date seizure suppression stimulation technologies (electrical stimulation) are majorly based on seizure detection procedure. No study has provided sound evidence that prospective seizure prediction/forecasting can be used to trigger closed loop therapeutics for drug resistant epilepsy treatment. Our proposal is based on the existing motor brain-computer interface algorithms already in clinical use. They can be adapted to generate prediction/forecasting of seizures occurrence. Our working hypothesis is that treating during high-risk seizures periods and not during the actual seizure would require relatively minor doses of the therapeutical element. This will reduce the power consumption and open the door to fully implantable system. Decoding algorithms will be potentially redesigned to respond better to the epileptic seizures forecasting task. They will be compared to the state of the art CNN based approaches, and other approaches. Prediction/forecasting seizures algorithms will be evaluated in an epilepsy model established at Clinatec, using non-human primates, and the algorithms will be refined over time. Cooling the epileptic foci is an effective way to stop de seizure before generalization. This model allows us to test the efficacy of the algorithms in treating focal seizures. An assessment of hardware embedding design constraints would be conducted to facilitate next steps for the clinical device development. The project will benefit from a collaboration between Clinatec and DSYS/SSCE; and will be in line with upcoming activities of LETI’s artificial intelligence platform.
