Safety and Therapeutic Monitoring of Brain Stimulation in Patients with Partial Epilepsy
The purpose of this research is to learn more about 10 daily sessions of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and see if it can help to reduce the frequency of seizures (the number of seizures in a given period of time) in both adults and children with refractory focal epilepsy (epilepsy that cannot be well controlled by seizure medication). The University of Utah anticipates enrolling five patients in this study.
