Epilepsy

Project Details

Together with Professor O'Brien we have systematically collected data on patients seen within the Comprehensive Epilepsy Program, Royal Melbourne Hospital. This epilepsy database includes detailed clinical (neurological, neuropsychiatric, cognitive, quality of life, carer burden) and imaging data on over 700 patients. Dr Sophie Adams (PhD student) has collected detailed follow-up psychiatric diagnoses on over 100 of these patients for her neuroimaging PhD. We have created a unique neuropsychiatry / epilepsy fellow position for psychiatry trainees which has nurtured and mentored 5 senior psychiatry trainees over the last 5 years. We have also recently established a Psychosis in Epilepsy involving all three major Melbourne Epilpsy services (St Vincent's, Austin, Royal Melbourne Hospitals) to collaborate on studies of psychosis in epilepsy.
