Cap-stone (spring) Epilepsy
Childhoogd Epilepsy is a prevelant neurological disorder that is often complicated by cognitive impairment

Study design

Orginal cohort of 75 children(8-18)with new onset epilepsy and 62 healthy controls
New cohort of 75 childern(8-18) with new onset epolepsy and 75 healthy controls
Total =150 epileptic childern 137 healthy controls
Structural scan
Diffusion tensor imaging scan
Neuropsychological assessment
language,memory,executive functions and motor/psychomotor speed.

Identify the nature of abnormal white matter microstructure associated with epilepsy.Hypothesis: Childern with epilepsy will have decreased cerebral white matter microstructure at onset of the disease.
To identify the functional cosquence of decrease white matter in epileptic children.Hypothesis: Epileptic childern will exhibit decresed fuctional activation in executive function regions of the brain.
Determine the association between the structral and functional abnormalities and neurobehavioural comorbidity.Hypothesis: Children with epilepsy will exhibit increase levels of academic problems and ADHD???
Outside area Paper
Deleniating the boundry of Adolescent/Adult brain
Expectations: How long, review of the topic and critique,and policy consequences. How much prelim data?
