    Dr. Aline Herlopian


    Dr. Aline Herlopian is an Assistant Professor of Neurology at Yale School of Medicine and specializes in Critical Care Medicine and treating patients with epilepsy. Dr. Herlopian is certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and Clinical Neurophysiology. She earned her Doctor of Medicine degree at the American University of Beirut with residency training at the University of Arkansas followed by fellowship training in Clinical Neurophysiology and epilepsy at Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School. Early on in her training she became fascinated by epilepsy after learning how dynamic neural networks in the brain can communicate abnormally and sometimes resulting in seizures.

    In her daily practice, Dr. Herlopian enjoys combining her clinical research work with patient care. Her main interest is caring for patients with catastrophic epilepsies, and seizures that fail to respond to seizure medications. She explores various treatments such as brain stimulation, laser therapy, and surgical resection in patients who did not respond to seizure medications with the aim of improving their quality of life. Dr. Herlopian’s research interests have led to numerous publications on Epilepsy, Status Epilepticus, EEG, and Encephalopathy just to cite a few.
