This annual meeting began in 2009 with the aim of uniting basic science and clinical researchers in the North East of England who were working on Epilepsy. Enabling people from different research backgrounds to share ideas, current thinking and foster collaborations. In addition to oral and poster presentations, each meeting also includes an ‘Osselton Lecture’ named in honour of eminent neurologist John Osselton who spent his entire career at Newcastle University. His contribution to the development and refinement of EEG technology is acknowledged by the universal appreciation that many neurologists, neurophysiologists and technicians, past and present, hold for his edition of the Handbook of Clinical Neurophysiology.
