Prof. Alon Friedman, M.D., Ph.D. is a neurophysiologist and neurosurgeon, who heads BGU’s Laboratory for Experimental Neurosurgery in collaboration with Soroka University Medical Center.  Prof. Friedman made a dramatic discovery about the blood-brain barrier and its connection to the onset of trauma-induced epilepsy following concussions by professional football players. His research also focuses on how the brain’s electrical activity, structure and function change in common neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and epilepsy.
