The additional burden of epilepsy: a psychological and neuropsychological perspective

Epilepsy is a recognised consequence of an acquired brain injury. However, there is often little recognition of the substantial additional burden the condition brings for the individual or their family beyond the head injury. This is despite an extensive literature of the physical, psychological and neuropsychological sequelae. In this presentation, the author will consider the impact of epilepsy and its treatment and how that might be ameliorated.
