Professional Interests

Dr. Legatt's clinical activities include intraoperative neurophysiologic monitoring, EEG-CCTV monitoring for epilepsy, and clinical EEG and evoked potential studies. His research interests include the analysis of EEG monitoring data, the subcomponent structure and generators of evoked potentials, new methods for analysis of evoked potential studies, evoked potential changes in patients with epilepsy, and techniques for intraoperative monitoring of the nervous system.
