Erin Schaeffer

Graduate Student


I am currently part of the MD/PhD program at UW-Madison. For my PhD, I will be studying various applications of noninvasive brain stimulation. Previously, I worked in Dr. Kareem Zaghloul’s lab as a postbac IRTA at NIH studying cognition using intracranial recordings in patients with epilepsy. Prior, I received my BS in Neuroscience from Brown University, where I worked in Dr. Wael Asaad’s lab studying neuronal responses to movement during deep brain stimulation surgery.

Research Interests: cognition, consciousness, electrophysiology, noninvasive brain stimulation, epilepsy.
