Sleep and Epilepsy discussed in annual Young Epilepsy Research Masterclass
Between Wednesday 26 and Thursday 27 April 2017, Young Epilepsy was proud to host their annual two-day Research Masterclass.
Hosted at Young Epilepsy’s Lingfield campus, this was an opportunity for researchers, esteemed professors and doctors to network and share their key findings on ground-breaking research.
The theme for this Masterclass was based around sleep.
Amongst the speakers were Professor Helen Cross who presented ‘Epilepsy syndromes related to sleep in childhood’, Samantha Chan who talked about ‘Sleep, cognition and epilepsy’, and Bigna Bolsterli who discussed ‘The interaction of epileptic discharges and sleep slow waves during CSWS’.
The keynote speech was delivered by Professor Patrick Van Bogaert who delved into sleep disorders in children with neurodevelopmental disorders.
During the second day, Professor Paul Gringras and Dr Zenobia Zaiwalla hosted workshop sessions about managing sleep disorders and differential diagnosis of events in sleep respectively.
