Erik St. Louis, MD, Chair
This course will provide a broad overview of sleep and epilepsy including the differential diagnosis of sleep-related seizures such as parasomnias and other nocturnal events; the reciprocal relationships between sleep and epilepsy (how sleep impacts seizure and EEG spike occurrence, and how epileptic seizures may erode sleep architecture and adversely influence sleep); and the impact of circadian rhythms on seizure periodicity.
