Epilepsy Day 2017

Sun, 2017-03-26 18:04

March 26 is Purple Day for Epilepsy, a day to support epilepsy awareness worldwide

The Neuro has been a world leader in epilepsy treatment and research for more than 60 years.

The Neuro was also a pioneering institute in exploiting electroencephalography (EEG) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to study and treat epilepsy.
