James Tao, MD, PhD, specializes in the diagnosis and management of seizure disorders and epilepsy syndromes. Dr. Tao is interested in the use of surgery and vagal nerve stimulation for treating patients with medically resistant epilepsy. As director of the Electroencephalography (EEG) Laboratory at the University of Chicago, he oversees EEG studies that diagnose epileptic seizure and localize it in the patient’s brain to help guide surgical resection.
His clinical research focuses on the use of electrophysiology and different types of neuroimaging, including 3-dimensional computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and positron emission tomography (PET) to guide epilepsy surgery. In addition, Dr. Tao is 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.
