3rd Halifax International Epilepsy Conference

September 17 to 19, 2014, White Point Beach Lodge, N.S.

First Seizure: Tip of the Iceberg? The Relevance of Neuropsychiatric Symptoms and Cognitive Problems in New-onset Epilepsy

Epilepsy researchers from around the world are invited to convene in Nova Scotia this fall to discuss the latest findings about new-onset epilepsy.

There is increasing evidence that both cognitive and psychological problems - mainly depression and anxiety - may precede the first seizure. It is possible that changes in the complex biochemical environment in the brain, even before the initial seizure, lead to cognitive and psychological symptoms that predict the increased likelihood of seizures. To address this complex issue and facilitate collaborative and innovative research in this area, conference organizers have invited leading international experts in epilepsy to lead the conference.
