Dr. Alexander Rotenberg, MD
Alexander Rotenberg is a neurologist and epileptologist, and Director of the Neuromoduation Program within the Department of Neurology. He is the recipient of the 2016 Dreifuss-Penry Epilepsy Award from the American Academy of Neurology. He is also the 2015-2016 president of the Greater Boston Epilepsy Society. Dr. Rotenberg leads local efforts to adapt methods for transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and other forms of noninvasive brain stimulation to the pediatric population, particularly to children with epilepsy. He also heads a basic science laboratory where experiments focus on translational applications of noninvasive brain stimulation in animal models of epilepsy and traumatic brain injury. Among his ongoing scientific studies are clinical trials aimed to test the capacity of TMS and related methods for brain stimulation to stop drug-resistant seizures, clinical studies of human brain plasticity in autism, and preclinical studies aimed to describe the neurobiology of a range of brain stimulation methods in order to improve their efficacy in clinical practice.

Dr. Rotenberg's Care Philosophy

I remind my patients and their families that a physician is responsible not just for prescribing treatment, but for interpreting the medical science associated with the patient's condition and with the treatment choice – these should be no more a mystery to my patients than to me. I spend my professional days in medicine and science so that I can share both with my patients.
