Markus Reuber, SEM MD PhD FRCP

I am a Professor of Clinical Neurology at the University of Sheffield and Honorary Consultant at the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in Sheffield, United Kingdom. I am also the Editor-in-Chief of Seizure -- European Journal of epilepsy.

I am particularly interested in the phenomenology and treatment of epileptic and non-epileptic seizure disorders and in communication between doctors and patients.

I have been involved in research projects examining a wide range of clinical issues in epileptology and general neurology. For instance, I have helped to investigate the use of new functional imaging techniques in patients with epilepsy, the long-term effects of epilepsy surgery on memory and the effects of epilepsy or anticonvulsant drugs on sex hormones. Most of my research, however, has concentrated on improvements of the diagnosis of epilepsy and similar disorders, especially nonepileptic seizures. My most recent studies have focussed on the psychological treatment of patients with functional neurological symptoms, the involvement of the autonomic system in epileptic and nonepileptic seizures and the interaction between doctors and patients using the methodology of Conversation Analysis (CA). I have been particularly interested in exploring the use of CA as a supplementary diagnostic method.
