• Neurology Research

    The Division of Neurology at Cincinnati Children’s pursues a wide range of research topics. We are committed to advancing understanding of neurological disorders and the most effective methods to diagnose, manage and treat them. Along the way, our team of clinician-scientists is applying what we learn to give your patients the most advanced, up-to-date care available.

    Neuroimaging Studies

    Our team has a long-standing interest in fMRI studies of language localization in both healthy children and children with neurological and developmental conditions. Mark Schapiro, MD, is using fMRI to study language activation patterns in patients with Down syndrome, and Anna Byars, PhD, continues her research of language activation in patients who have suffered a stroke.

    Tuberous Sclerosis Program

    This multispecialty program follows hundreds of patients with tuberous sclerosis and related disorders. Our team consists of specialists from neurology, nephrology, pulmonary medicine, human genetics, cardiology, psychiatry and other divisions at Cincinnati Children’s. We offer a range of cutting-edge neurosurgical interventions to address our patients’ specific needs.

    The Headache Center

    Our research at the Headache Center focuses on clinical trials and outcome studies. From our blood genomic study of pediatric migraine to our team members’ international educational work, we are advancing understanding of pediatric headache.
