De Palma Luca


I studied medicine in Padua, Italy, where I received my MD and did my residency in child neuropsychiatry. I focused my interest in epilepsy from the first years.

I spent 18 months, during my residency in Lyon and Grenoble, under the supervision of Philippe Kahane and Lorella Minotti. During this period I focused my research on the presurgical evaluation and in particular on the SEEG correlates of infantile spasms. 

From 2014 I am part of the Epilepsy Surgery Unit of the Bambino Gesu’ Children Hospital, under the supervision of Nicola Specchio. 

I am now in charge of the invasive monitoring (SEEG).
