The Impact of Epilepsy and Seizures on Cognition and Memory

This week on Seizing Life® we speak with neurologist Dr. Alice Lam about the potential impacts of seizures on cognition and memory. We discuss both the possible short-term and long-term effects of epilepsy on cognition and memory, and the differering ways that seizures may impact children, adults, and aging adults.

Post-Traumatic Epilepsy and Our Veterans: Impact, Research, and Hope

This week on Seizing Life ® we focus on traumatic brain injury (TBI) and post-traumatic epilepsy (PTE) in veterans with Dr. Lauren Harte-Hargrove, Associate Director of Research at CURE Epilepsy, who shares insights on CURE Epilepsy’s Post-Traumatic Epilepsy initiative. We also revisit past conversations with two former service members who suffered a TBI in the line of duty and developed PTE as a result of their injuries.
