Dr. Manoj Raghavan is a professor of neurology and neurosurgery at the Medical College of Wisconsin and member of the Neuroscience Research Institute. After completing training in Neurology followed by a fellowship in Clinical Neurophysiology and Epileptology at the New York University School of Medicine, Dr. Raghavan has primarily focused on the evaluation and management of patients with epilepsy. He has a special interest in the surgical treatment of medically refractory epilepsy. Dr. Raghavan's clinical expertise also covers general Neurology and Clinical Neurophysiology.

Dr. Raghavan’s research interests include quantitative analysis of EEG and MEG signals, mechanisms underlying the generation of brain-rhythms and their reactions to mental activity, imaging methods for mapping brain functions and their reorganization with disease or injury, mechanisms underlying seizure-onset and termination, and models of visual sensitivity.
