#AES19 Specialist Symposium features Erin Conrad, M.D.

At this year’s annual meeting of the American Epilepsy Society, former CNT student and current Penn Epilepsy Fellow Erin Conrad, M.D., presented her soon-to-be published findings in a talk titled, “Does the Spatial Distribution or Frequency of IED Predict Seizure Onset Zone?”

The AES annual conference is the largest gathering on epilepsy in the world, and Conrad’s talk was part of an expert-led symposium on how interictal epileptiform discharges, or pathological patterns of brain activity between seizures, can be used to localize seizure onset.

Her findings have been recently accepted to Brain: A Journal of Neurology under the title, “The spatial topology of interictal spikes evolves over time and predicts the location of seizure onset”. To find out more about AES19 and Conrad’s talk, please visit the #AES19 website.
