Our research seeks to better understand the effects of epilepsy on brain structure and functioning. We utilize structural and functional imaging to observe neuronal differences in youth with epilepsy, focusing on language, memory, and executive functioning domains. Our goal is to enhance clinical care of epilepsy patients in order to improve the outcomes and lives of children with epilepsy.
