Aidan McKendrick had the first of what was to become a lifetime of seizures at the age of 10 months. At Epilepsy Society we are undertaking a genomics research programme to help us understand the causes of epilepsy. Thanks to the amazing progress that has been made in diagnosing epilepsy by decoding a person’s DNA, Aidan is now able to take the correct medication which has turned his life around.
Created as part of a project for National Epilepsy Week, these videos show a range of different seizures including tonic clonic seizures, absence seizures and myoclonic seizures.
