Therapeutic Efficacy Of Environmental Enrichment Following Early-Life Seizures
Sookyong Koh, MD, PhD
Children’s Memorial Hospital, Northwestern University
The potential of an intense educational program as a therapeutic tool for children with epilepsy has received very little attention, though it is believed to be effective for other neurological disorders. There is currently no effective intervention for children with epilepsy to prevent the long-term brain damage and neurological effects of seizures. The goal of Dr. Koh’s project is to study, in young rats, the effectiveness of environmental enrichment in reversing seizure-induced brain damage.
