Videos about epilepsy

We hope you enjoy our collection of videos about epilepsy, most of which have been produced by Dr Rose Thompson. We have divided them into four categories: videos about a particular aspect of epilepsy, videos about living with epilepsy, videos about fundraising and videos about the real life impact of research. We will be adding new ones periodically, so do make sure you check back regularly!
