Our current research is focused in two areas:

  1. The effects of childhood onset epilepsies on brain structure, cognition and psychiatric status (3 NIH RO1 44351). This involves baseline cross-sectional and longitudinal (2, 5, 10 year) follow-up of the cohort. This research is carried out with our collaborators in medical physics, radiology, psychiatry, neurology and neuropsychology here at UW along with collaborators at other institutions.
  2. The effects of chronic epilepsy on brain and cognitive aging.
