Research Interests

Dr. Maciel is the director of research for the neurocritical care division and the founding member of the Cardiac Arrest Resource Team. Dr. Maciel’s interests include the humbling task of predicting neurologic outcome following acute brain injury, the mechanisms related to secondary brain injury in the neurocritically ill, and the critical care management of the potential organ donor. Dr. Maciel’s research focuses on improving neuroprognostication techniques and understanding the impact of cortical electrical phenomena (seizures and cortical spreading depolarization) after acute brain injuries. Dr. Maciel is working to elucidate mechanisms of secondary brain injury following cardiac arrest and therapies for post-anoxic status epilepticus
