Biography - Eyiyemisi C. Damisah, MD

Eyiyemisi Damisah, MD, is a neurosurgeon who treats adults and children with medication refractory epilepsy and movement disorders. She specializes in minimally invasive approaches and advanced brain-mapping technologies for the treatment of epilepsy. She also has extensive experience with implantable devices, such as deep brain stimulation (DBS), responsive neurostimulation (RNS), and vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) that target specific nerves to halt seizures, movement disorders, or other psychiatric conditions. She is the division chief of Epilepsy and Functional Neurosurgery at Yale School of Medicine.

Dr. Damisah’s research focuses on the neural mechanism of threat-processing in humans and neuroanatomical substrates of higher order cognition that can be modulated for the treatment of threat-based disorders, such as anxiety and PTSD. She co-directs the Center of Brain and Mind Health, which brings together engineering psychiatry and neurosurgery to develop technology to treat patients with neurological disorders and functional movement disorders.

Dr. Damisah received her bachelor's degree in Religious Studies in 2006 from Biola University. She obtained her medical degree, neurosurgical residency, and functional neurosurgery fellowship at Yale School of Medicine. She started her clinical practice as the director of the Epilepsy Surgery Program in 2019 and opened the Damisah Lab at Yale in 2021.
