Our epilepsy and seizures community of patients, family, friends and doctors has been busy!

Our epilepsy and seizures community of patients, family, friends and doctors has been busy!   Even though it has been winter, our doctors, office managers, secretaries and nurses have definitely not slowed down one bit. Instead, they have been extra-busy raising epilepsy and seizure awareness through:

1) Receiving awards and recognition from medical peers

2) publishing scientific articles in peer-reviewed journals, 

3) Presenting scientific research findings at an international conference in New York City. 

One of our amazing doctors, Dr. John Ebersole, Medical Director of the MEG Center at Overlook Hospital in Summit, NJ was awarded the Legacy Award by the American Clinical MEG Society for "significant contributions to the field of clinical magnetoencephalography."  Hearty congratulations go out to him!!!

Publications: Our group of doctors have been active conducting research and publishing in peer-reviewed scientific journals.  Dr. Lorna Myers collaborated with a team of researchers in Argentina (South America) and they have recently published a paper in Epilepsy and Behavior.  The title of the paper is: Long term outcome in a sample of underprivileged patients with psychogenic nonepileptic seizures (PNES) living in Argentina

Presentations: March 31, 2019: Drs. Robert Trobliger and Lorna Myers along with Dr. Deepti Anbarasan and Dr. Paola Bailey (she was a neuropsychology fellow at NEREG several years back) presented at the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation in New York City.  The title of the symposium is: The neuropsychology, neuropsychiatry and psychological treatments of dissociative seizures (Psychogenic non-epileptic).
