Temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) is the most common form of epilepsy in adults and affects roughly 60,000 Minnesotans. Shayne Hastings' project will examine the connections and understudied intermediary regions between the cerebellum and hippocampus and how those may contribute to the development of novel targets for seizure intervention via neuromodulation. Understanding how other brain regions modulate hippocampal function may allow for development of new neuromodulation interventions for the treatment of epilepsy.
