Epilepsy research prize: smarter EEGs

The Epilepsy League 2024 Research Promotion Award is twice about better evaluation and interpretation of EEGs. The electroencephalogram, or EEG for short, is at the heart of epilepsy diagnostics. It measures brain waves, usually at the top of the skull, and provides important information, such as whether treatment is necessary after a first epileptic seizure or where in the brain the seizures occur. There is still potential for improvement in prognoses based on EEGs, which the two projects are exploring in different ways.
