The study will involve providing blood for DNA/RNA/protein analyses, review of EEG and MRI findings, as well as questionnaires regarding your epilepsy treatment and other health issues, including disability, feelings of mood, depression, anxiety, feelings of embarrassment related to epilepsy, fatigue, sleep disturbance, anger, and quality of life.
