Treating Pediatric Epilepsy

Dr. Jodi Smith—director of pediatric neurosurgery at Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health—share how epilepsy in children is diagnosed. While prescription drugs can help control seizures, surgery is the only cure from epileptic seizures. Tissues taken from the most active epileptic tissue after surgery are assessed microscopically to determine how they respond within the greater neuro-network. Understanding how human versus rat tissues behave gets the community closer to a cure for pediatric epilepsy.
