Epilepsy Surgery Webinar

Webinar Invitation: Epilepsy Surgery

Join us for the next in our series of Research Roundtable webinars when we’ll be hearing from the experts and people with lived experience on the topic of epilepsy surgery.

Sometimes epilepsy does not respond to medication and in some cases, surgery may be considered as a promising treatment option with the potential to control seizures. But surgery doesn’t come without risks and challenges. In this webinar, we’ll hear how world-leading research funded by Epilepsy Research UK has helped to improve surgery for people living with epilepsy and one person’s remarkable story of the difference it can make.

The session is open to everyone and will be held at 12pm on Tuesday 31st August. So, whether you are affected by epilepsy, researching epilepsy or just interested to learn more, we hope you can join us.

Our fantastic guest speakers include:

Professor Torsten Baldeweg, cognitive neuroscientist based at UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health, who will explain how his ERUK-funded research has enabled clinicians to better predict cognitive outcomes for children following surgery.

Dr Sjoerd Vos and PhD student Lawrence Binding, who are based in the Centre for Medical Image Computing at UCL, will share how their Epilepsy Research UK Endeavour Project Grant could help reduce language decline as a result of surgery.  

There will be a Q&A session with the speakers after the presentations, so please send any questions you may have to our Head of Research, Caoimhe Twohig-Bennett here.de:

walk day

Walk Day

On 24 July a group from Epilepsy Berkshire met at Caversham Bridge to walk along the Thames Path towards Mapledurham , to enjoy a picnic lunch and refreshments at a local hotel after  the exercise.

The walkers were welcomed by a lively flock of swans at the riverside.

The weather was comfortable for walking following a lengthy period of very hot weather.

The walk was a good opportunity to meet with old friends and establish new relationships.

The impact of the virus has been that Epilepsy Berkshire has had fewer opportunities to meet in person, however, this should change as rules relax.

Next meetings will be held at St Nicholas Church Hall, Earley. We will contact the group to inform them of all details which will be included on our website www.epilepsyberkshire.org.
