Christos published a chapter in March entitled “Neuroimaging in neonatal seizures” in the book Neonatal Seizures: Current management and future challenges, Chapter: 6, Publisher: Mac Keith Press, Editor: Lakshmi Nagarajan, pp.76-99.

Christos was selected as Team Leader for happiness in the Human Affectome Project .

Christos was selected to present two abstracts [1] [2] on cerebral palsy at the 22nd Annual Meeting of the Organization for Human Brain Mapping Conference (June 26-30, 2016).

Christos published an article in August in Clinical Neurophysiology entitled, “Real-time multi-channel monitoring of burst-suppression using neural network technology during pediatric status epilepticus treatment”. One of our former interns, Fatemeh Ashkezari, was also featured in this article.

In September, Christos was selected to present two talks at the American Academy for Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine Conference in Hollywood, Florida (September 20-24, 2016): “Reorganization of the Somatosensory Cortex in Children with Cerebral Palsy due to Impaired Thalamocortial Sensory Tracts”, and “Altered White Matter Connectivity Associated with Intergyral Brain Disorganization in Cerebral Palsy”. He was also selected to serve on the Research Committee for the organization.

Christos was invited by Dr. Charles Berde, Division Chief of Pain Medicine and Professor of Anesthesia, to give a talk to the Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative, and Pain. He presented on “Advanced Multimodal Neuroimaging for Studying Cerebral Palsy and Epilepsy”.

Christos was invited to give a talk in Seoul, South Korea for the International Conference on Biomagnetism (October 1-6, 2016)  for his work with cerebral palsy entitled “Multimodal neuroimaging in children with cerebral palsy to assess cortical reorganization in relation to upper limb function”.

Christos was invited to give a talk as a keynote speaker at the Society of Applied Neuroscience meeting in Corfu, Greece (October 6-9, 2016). He presented on Advanced Multimodal Neuroimaging for Studying Prevalent Neurological Pediatric Disorders.
