Our Education, Information and Support Services Manager, Andrée Mayne, gives some helpful tips on coping over Christmas if you have epilepsy.
“When epilepsy comes in life it can frighten the daylights out of me…It is a must that the helpline can be open for five days a week.”
Researcher Baris Kanber explains how machine learning - or Artificial Intelligence - could enable more people with uncontrolled seizures to achieve seizure freedom.

At the moment we can only recruit people for our research who are under the care of UCLH. However, if you would like to be considered for future research projects or for treatment at our Chalfont Centre which provides specialist care for people with difficult-to-treat epilepsy, you can ask your GP or neurologist to refer you to us as a patient.

It's a little known fact that while St. Valentine is widely associated with love and the giving of 'valentines', he is also the patron saint of people with epilepsy.
By becoming a corporate partner of Epilepsy Society, you will help us to achieve our ambitious goals to change lives through funding our vital medical research and championing our cause.
An international team of researchers, led by doctors from Epilepsy Society, used exome sequencing to unlock the genetic cause of DOORS syndrome. The rare, autosomal recessive genetic condition is characterised by deafness, onychodystrophy, osteodystrophy, intellectual disability and seizures.
Bioinformatics uses computer programming to analyse or interpret the huge amount of data a sequenced genome produces. This will help us to understand the genetic architecture of the epilepsies and accelerate precision treatment for epilepsy.
