Do you have lived experience of #Epilepsy, or care for somebody that does? Come to the workshop on Wed 21st March, held at #Exeter University – to help us develop a new approach to #Epilepsy Surgery using mathematical modelling to understand where #Seizures start and how they spread throughout the #Brain . Here’s the info :
Improving surgical treatment for epilepsy workshop
A third of people diagnosed with epilepsy do not respond to drug treatments and surgery is the only treatment option
Surgery is often not completely successful as it is difficult to identify exactly which areas of the brain are causing the epilepsy
Researchers in Exeter are developing a new approach to epilepsy surgery using mathematical modelling to understand where seizures start and how they spread throughout the brain.
How can you get involved?
We are keen to invite people who have, or care for someone with epilepsy to a workshop to discuss this research. If you have had surgery or have been offered or are considering surgery we would be particularly interested in hearing from you.
Join us at our workshop:
WHEN:Wednesday 21 March 2018 TIME: afternoon (exact time TBC) WHERE: Living Systems Building, University of Exeter, Stocker Road, EX4 4QD
Refreshments will be provided
We will pay a small “thank you” payment of £25 and also reimburse your travel expenses (such as Train and Taxi). If you would like to join us, or for more information, please contact:
