Jurriaan Peters


Jurriaan M. Peters MD, PhD, is a pediatric epileptologist with additional expertise in clinical neurophysiology and neuroimaging, and is dedicated to understand and localize the origin of seizures in children with medically refractory epilepsy. He is the principal epileptologist at the Multidisciplionary Tuberous Sclerosis Program at Boston Children’s Hospital. He is an assistant in Neurology at Boston Children’s Hospital, and an Assistant Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School. In the Computational Radiology Laboratory, his research is aligned with his clinical strengths, and is focused on establishing EEG biomarkers and diffusion imaging predictors of the neurological phenotype in Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC), a genetic neurocutaneous disorder strongly but unpredictably associated with epilepsy, cognitive disability and autism. More current work also includes new applications of MRI and EEG modeling techniques for the localization of seizures, including longitudinal changes of diffusion MRI over time, lesion network mapping, and the merger of EEG and MRI data into a single model (see http://bit.ly/localizationlab).​​
