Pariya Salami, Ph.D. and Rina Zelmann, Ph.D. were promoted this past summer to the positions of Instructors in the Department of Neurology at Massachusetts General Hospital and in Harvard Medical School. These well-deserved promotions are credits to their work in understanding seizures, epilepsy, neural signals, stimulation, and closing the loop to neural activity. They both have guided and taught multiple students, fellows, and laboratory technicians over the years in recording from and understanding the brain.

Below are just a few of their publications with more to come!
