Molecular and cellular analysis of nervous system regeneration Dr. Lévesque is internationally known for his work in the microsurgery of epilepsy and functional stereotactic neurosurgery. He developed a stereotactic imaging system for targeting and operating within precise landmarks to preserve eloquent cortex and a unique technique of selective hippocampectomy by posterior transinsular approach. Dr. Lévesque has now expanded the application of new methods of brain mapping to treat children with autistic-like features, with Landau-Kleffner syndrome, as well as for patients with severe infantile spasms. Dr. Lévesque, who has more than 100 publications in this field, is a consultant to the NIH and to the national and state medical committees.
