Workshop activity
  • Have you ever wanted to find out more about epilepsy?
  • Do you want to take part in research that might help improve the lives of those with the condition?
  • If you live in the Newcastle-upon-Tyne area the chance is coming soon!

Researchers at Newcastle University are inviting people affected by epilepsy to attend a special epilepsy information and discussion session being held in September. It is a session called "Tsunamis in the Brain-the science and sociology of epilepsy" and its part of the British Science Festival.

Information will also be presented about a current research project at the univeristy that Epilepsy Action are supporting. The project is looking at optical tests that could be used to help establish the likelihood of someone having a seizure on any given day. After the lecture people will be invited to take part in the test, which is similar to an eye test you would have at the opticians. They will also be able to sign-up to be a part of the research study.

The event is an hour-long information and discussion session, plus an extra hour for those interested in finding out more about the research project. It is open to everyone and free to attend.
