Welcome to the
Brain development in Early Epilepsy (BEE) Study
About the BEE Study
The Brain development in Early Epilepsy (BEE) Study aims to track the development of babies with epilepsy, in order to understand features that might predict later outcomes, such as autism. The study is funded by an Epilepsy Research UK and Autistica fellowship, and will be co-sponsored by King's College London and Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust.
This new project will help us to better understand how the development of babies with early-onset epilepsy differs to typically developing babies, and how this is associated with later behaviour. By carrying out our research within the home, we can work with families in a place of comfort and allow convenience to take part easily.
