We are now in the final year of the Neuroimaging and Cognition in Rolandic Epilepsy (CREME/ROLAND) study. So far we have collected follow-up MRI scans from ten individuals. Using this data, we have submitted an abstract to the European Congress of Epileptology 2018 in Vienna. We have evidence to suggest a differing rate of growth in two children with rolandic epilepsy compared to a healthy control (see images above). We will keep you updated if the abstract is accepted.

To improve the strength of our analysis and to learn more about how rolandic epilepsy affects the development of children we need as many follow-up scans as possible. If you were part of the original ROLAND study please get in contact. We would be delighted to have you back and we will provide a generous reimbursement plus travel expenses.
