Research Summary

Research interests involve the risks and predictors of intractability and morbidity in childhood epilepsy. Dr. Susan Levy and I have been involved, along with Dr. Anne Berg, in the Connecticut study of epilepsy - a longitudinal study of a prospectively recruited and followed community-based cohort of children with newly diagnosed epilepsy, since 1993. We have been able to address issues of seizure outcome, mortality, and status epilepticus, as well as educational and developmental outcomes. This study continues to provide unique information about the outcomes of epilepsy in children over the course of more than a decade after initial diagnosis.
