How Artificial Intelligence is helping us to read brain scans

Researcher Baris Kanber explains how machine learning - or Artificial Intelligence - could enable more people with uncontrolled seizures to achieve seizure freedom.

Our Calm, Cushion, Call poster

You'll be receiving your Calm, Cushion, Call poster in the next two weeks. If you have any issues with your order please email donor.support@epilepsysociety.org.uk  Display your poster in a prominent place such as a school, workplace, surgery or library, as long as you have permission.

Recruiting people for our research

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. 

Corporate partners

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.

DOORS Syndrome Has Genetic 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.

Developing a Hub for Genomics Data Analysis and Clinical Data Interpretation

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.

Brain scans

A selection of neuroimaging research projects.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive and painless technique, using a powerful magnetic field, similar to that used in an MRI scanner. 

Optical Coherence Tomography

Optical Coherence Tomography is one of the most advanced scanning tools used to the thickness of the retinal fibres at the back of the eye.

3D Stereophotogrammetry

We know that the shape of the human face is influenced by genetic factors. Now our researchers are using 3D imaging, or three-dimensional stereophotogrammetry, to try to establish whether there is a link between face shape and genetic variations which can lead to epilepsy.
