The Science of Epilepsy: What It Is and How Can We Understand It
Epilepsy is one of the most misunderstood disorders, shrouded with stigma, and, in some parts of the world still associated with the supernatural. This talk attempts to demystify this disorder and addresses both the clinical appearance of epilepsy (what a seizure looks like) and what happens in the brain during a seizure. Through the course of the presentation, the audience will learn how to recognize a seizure and how to provide the proper first aid for someone who has epilepsy. You will learn how seizures arise from the brain and the efforts to better understand this mechanism in order to provide better therapies for patients suffering from epilepsy.
