Epilepsy

Participants Must:

Be at least 13 years old; with epilepsy undergoing surgical implantation of intracranial electrodes for continuous video-electroencephalography (EEG).

Summary:

This study focuses on individuals who have medically intractable epilepsy and are planning to, or have already undergone, insertion of electrodes into the brain to help find the source of seizures. The purpose of the study is to measure the activity of individual nerve cells (neurons) and collections of nerve cells (local field potentials) in the brain during simple learning, memory, decision-making or problem-solving tasks, as well as before and during voluntary movement.

Summary:

The purpose of this study is to establish a repository of DNA and tissue samples to be used for future research studies investigating the clinical and genetic features of various types of neurologic and neuromuscular conditions.
