The aim of this program is to develop an understanding of the magnitude of post-traumatic epilepsy (PTE) within the military and to expand research into the basic mechanisms by which traumatic brain injury (TBI) produces epilepsy.
The intent of the Idea Development Award is to solicit research to understand the magnitude and underlying mechanisms of PTE, especially in Service members and Veterans, while also benefiting the civilian community.
