Living with the uncertainty of epilepsy

Epilepsy is a common consequence following all types of head trauma.  Epilepsy has been found to occur following mild, moderate and severe brain injury and often occurs following car accidents, drowning and injuries that cause lack of oxygen to the brain.

Unfortunately, epilepsy is misunderstood by most individuals.  NPR recently produced an interesting radio show on the difficulties faced by individuals with epilepsy and their family members.

Guests on the radio broadcast are: Warren Lammert, co-founder and chairman of the Epilepsy Therapy Project and Dr. Orrin Devinsky, director of the Comprehensive Epilepsy Center and professor of neurology, neurosurgery and psychiatry at the NYU School of Medicine.

Listen to the epilepsy broadcast.
