Dr. Wusthoff's projects focus on clinical research in newborns with, or at risk, for brain injury. She uses EEG in at-risk neonates to better understand the underlying pathophysiology of risk factors that may lead to worse outcomes. Dr. Wusthoff is particularly interested in neonatal seizures and how they may exacerbate perinatal brain injury with a goal to identify treatments that might protect the vulnerable brain. She is also interested in EEG in other pediatric populations, as well as medical ethics and global health.
