Jones, J., D. Jackson, K. Chambers, K. Dabbs, D. Hsu, C. Stafstrom, M. Seidenberg, and B. Hermann. “Children With Epilepsy and Anxiety: Subcortical and Cortical Differences.”. Epilepsia, Vol. 56, no. 2, 2015, pp. 283-90.

Using a hypothesis-driven approach, subcortical and cortical regions implicated in anxiety disorders in the general population were examined in children with recent-onset epilepsy with versus without anxiety compared to controls. This study reports frequency of anxiety disorders while examining familial, clinical, and demographic variables associated with anxiety in children with epilepsy.
