I am currently studying for a degree in Psychology at the University Centre at Blackburn College and I am conducting a piece of independent research investigating the impact of the frequency of seizures experienced by people with epilepsy and their own perception of their memory. This research has been inspired by my own experiences with my daughter who has been diagnosed with a rare form of epilepsy.

The measure is very brief and does not require any personal information from the participants other than their age, gender, a reported frequency of seizures experienced over the last six months, and six questions asking them about their perception of their memory. The survey is open to anyone who is over the age of 18 and has had their diagnosis for over one year. If you would like to participate please click the link below. 

If you have any questions about the research, please feel free to email myself or my research supervisor on the details provided within the questionnaire. 

Thank you for your time.
