Luc Valton

MD, epileptologist

Team : PROS (Perception and Recognition of Objects and Space)


I’m an epileptologist and the head of the Clinical Neurophysiology unit at Toulouse University Hospital. My research is focused on the correlations between brain, behaviour and electrophysiology. I work on several projects :

  • how to reduce the cognitive impact of epilepsy surgery (ACTELIN and MEMSTIM projects).
  • how to identify the epileptogenic network through intracerebral recordings using both standard depth electrodes and micro-electrodes (EPIFAR project).
  • how to extend epilepsy neurosurgery to children using new surgery techniques.
