Psychology and Psychiatric Services
Psychiatrists are available with special expertise in adult and pediatric epilepsy. Intervention may be on a one-time basis for the patient or may involve family members as well. Ongoing treatment may be useful for some patients. Neuropsychological testing obtained prior to epilepsy surgery serves as a functional means of identifying the epileptogenic cortex and identifies neurocognitive deficits that would affect occupational and vocational rehabilitation.
