Topic: Neurocognitive Comorbidities of Epilepsy in TSC
Speakers: Jamie Capal, MD, Shafali Jeste, MD, and Michael Wong, MD, PhD

“Epilepsy is a common neurological manifestation of TSC and is frequently associated with other neurocognitive comorbidities, such as intellectual disability, autism, and sleep disorders. Seizures may contribute to cognitive deficits, behavioral problems and sleep issues. In turn, sleep disorders and other comorbidities may exacerbate epilepsy. Increasing evidence suggests that overlapping mechanisms exist between epilepsy and its comorbidities in TSC, which may provide targeted therapeutic strategies for addressing multiple neurological manifestations of TSC. In this SIG, the clinical and pathophysiological features of cognitive deficits, autism, and sleep disorders in TSC will be discussed and their mechanistic and therapeutic relationship to epilepsy will be explored.”
