Latest publication from the lab:

July 2014 - This paper addresses the important question of how prenatal valproate exposure may lead to neuropsychological difficulties in children of women with epilepsy. It examines brain structure using MRI and is the first study internationally to measure these effects in this group. It's open access and here's where you can find it: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/acn3.74/abstract
