UNITED STATES

Dr. Dileep Nair is the section head of adult epilepsy at Cleveland Clinic. He received his medical degree in 1993 from Northeastern Ohio Medical University. He went on to do his neurology residency and clinical neurophysiology and epilepsy fellowship at Cleveland Clinic. He was previously EEG lab and intraoperative monitoring services at MetroHealth Medical Center, fellowship director for clinical neurophysiology/epilepsy at Cleveland Clinic and course director for the year two neuroscience course at Cleveland Clinic Learner College of Medicine. He received the Kaiser Permanente Award in Excellence in teaching in 2016 from Case Western Reserve School of Medicine.

Dr. Nair has over 80 peer reviewed articles in journals such as Brain, Neurology, Neurosurgery, Human Brain Mapping, Epilepsia and Clinical Neurophysiology.  His publications have been in the areas of human brain connectivity, invasive EEG recordings, brain stimulation and clinical neurophysiology. He is the principal investigator for a National Institute of Health funded RO1 grant to study brain connectivity in patients with focal epilepsy.  This grant uses a technique for measuring effective brain connectivity that he discovered called cortico-cortical evoked potentials (CCEPs). This methodology uses low frequency electrical stimulation applied directly to intracranial electrodes placed as a part of a surgical evaluation for the treatment of epilepsy.  This technique has now been adopted by numerous epilepsy centers across the world and has been validated methodology for exploring various pathological and functional brain networks.
