Leading-Edge Research

Our epilepsy experts are also at the forefront of epilepsy research. We are working to identify the precise source of seizures, which would allow us to prescribe the best possible treatment for children who suffer from epilepsy. This research also may reduce the need for invasive brain recording in children with epilepsy.
