What is Seizure?
Published ten times a year, Seizure, the health professional's journal for epilepsy, provides an international forum for the publication of research papers on topics related to epilepsy. Seizure publishes articles on the impact epilepsy can have on the lives of those who have it, their family and friends, and on society. Seizure is owned by Epilepsy Action and published by Elsevier.
Editor-in-Chief of Seizure
At the end of 2011, Professor Markus Reuber was appointed as Editor-in-Chief of Seizure. Markus is a Reader in Neurology at the University of Sheffield and works clinically at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield UK. His research has focused on doctor-patient communication, psychosocial (effects of a health condition on well-being) and neuropsychological (effects of the brain on such things as memory and language) aspects of epilepsy, and the nature and treatment of non-epileptic attack disorder (NEAD).
Message from Markus
One of the ways I want to develop Seizure is to make the research it publishes more widely available to non-professionals. I believe that this will help improve the flow of knowledge to patients, so they find out about new diagnostic techniques and treatments. This, in turn, should help patients and doctors understand each other better. This section will provide the opportunity for non-professionals to find out about the latest research and tell us what they think.
