Brief description Cardiac dysfunction is common in epilepsy, and could be an important contributor to the increased risk of sudden death in people with epilepsy (SUDEP). In this grant we will investigate: when changes in the cardiac function develop in relation to the epilepsy; if people with chronic epilepsy have similar changes; and what effect seizures and epilepsy has on the nerves innervating the heart. The outcomes have the potential to motivate new treatments and prevention for this important problem.
