Early Onset Epilepsy Database

A prospective study of all early life epilepsies focused on their evaluations, diagnoses, treatments, and early outcomes.  Children from birth to 3 years of age with new onset epilepsy were followed prospectively for one year.

Several publications have resulted from this project including:
