Research Using the NACC Database The role of seizures in dementia: risk factors and effects on clinical course Lead Investigator: Steven Shirk Institution : Edith Nourse Rogers Memorial Veterans Hospital E-Mail : email@example.com Proposal ID : 214 Proposal Description: Aims: 1) factors that are correlated with the development of seizures in dementia. That would include certain specific clinical seizure risk factors (i.e. do seizure risk factors increase risk of seizure in those with dementia) and bio markers such as ApoE4. 2) Does presence of seizures increase likelihood of death in those with dementia? 3) Are there specific pathological features in those who had seizures/dementia versus those without seizures.
