Participants wanted for the “Digital Reaction Test in Epilepsy”!

We are conducting a study with persons with epilepsy called Digital Reaction Test in Epilepsy, DigRTEpi. In this study, brain activity is recorded on the surface of the head while playing a video game on a laptop. In a second session, the monitor does not show a video game, but a person asks simple questions such as "What is the name of this place?" or simple tasks such as "touch your nose". The study is noninvasive, meaning no physical procedures such as incisions or blood sampling are performed, and the examination is not painful or dangerous. Brain activity is derived using a hood and head surface electrodes. Why participate in this study? Participants will learn about themselves, whether they have interictal epileptiform discharges (IEDs), and if so, what the effect of IEDs may be on their daily life activities. IEDs occur between seizures, are not self-perceived and frequent. If you are interested or have any questions, please contact the study physician: heinz.krestel@yale.edu
