overview James Tao, MD, PhD, a neurologist who specializes in the diagnosis and management of seizures and epilepsy. Dr. Tao directs the Adult Epilepsy Center and Clinical Neurophysiology Laboratory at the University of Chicago. Dr. Tao is highly skilled in the use of surgery and neurostimulation devices for treating patients with medically resistant epilepsy, with a particular interest in the minimally invasive surgery such as laser ablation. His clinical research focuses on the use of electrophysiology and different types of neuroimaging to localize the seizure focus and guide epilepsy surgery. Dr. Tao is also interested in the mechanism and prevention of sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP), which is the leading cause of mortality in patients with chronic uncontrolled epilepsy. His work has appeared in journals such as JAMA, Neurology, Epilepsia, Neuron, Neurosurgery, J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry, Seizure, and Epilepsy & Behavior. Dr. Tao is also involved in the education of medical students, residents and fellows. He directs clinical neurophysiology fellowship program. Dr. Tao has given many lectures during didactic teaching and grand rounds, as well as an invited lecturer nationally and internationally.
