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

Publications: Our group of doctors have been actively conducting research, collaborating with an international group of epilepsy doctors and publishing in peer-reviewed scientific journals.  Drs. Lori Lazar, Firas Taha and Lorna Myers worked on an international collaboration which produced three publications, two of which came out in Epilepsy and Behavior and one in Seizure.

1) Sex differences in demographic and clinical characteristics of psychogenic nonepileptic seizures: a retrospective multicenter international study. 

2) Pediatric onset psychogenic nonepileptic seizures: A retrospective international multicenter study. 

3) Adult-onset psychogenic nonepileptic seizures: a multicenter international study.

4) Dr. Lorna Myers also collaborated with her team in the Northeast Regional Epilepsy Group (Drs. Robert Trobliger, Kirsty Bortnik, Ruifan Zeng, Eric Segal and Marcelo Lancman), and published a paper in the journal: Seizure.  The title of the paper is: Dissociation and other clinical phenomena in youth with psychogenic non-epileptic seizures compared to youth with epilepsy. Seizure. Jun 24;70:49-55. doi: 10.1016/j.seizure.2019.06.028.
