Dr Emmanuel Carrera, MD

I am neurologist, head of the Geneva Stroke Center at the Geneva University Hospital. Privat Docent at the Faculty of Medicine, I have now started a comprehensive study of the effect of lesions on brain networks based on the expertise acquired during research fellowships in the Departments of Clinical Neurosciences, Columbia, NY, Cambridge, UK and Psychiatry, Madison, WI, in part supported by grants of the Swiss National Science Foundation.

Recently, we developed a theoretical model aiming at describing the impact of brain lesions on remote functional networks, and in particular on the “connectome” defined as a comprehensive map of all brain connection. We proposed that that these effects should be understood as part of the concept of diaschisis.
