Abstract

The association of epilepsy and autism spectrum disorders (ASD), although well-recognized, is poorly understood. The purpose of this report is to summarize the discussion of a workshop sponsored by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, with support from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, Autism Speaks, and Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy, that took place in Bethesda, Maryland, on May 29 and 30, 2012. The goals of this workshop were to highlight the clinical and biological relationships between ASD and epilepsy, to determine both short- and long-term goals that address research and treatment conundrums in individuals with both ASD and epilepsy, and to identify resources that can further both clinical and basic research. Topics discussed included epidemiology, genetics, environmental factors, common mechanisms, neuroimaging, neuropathology, neurophysiology, treatment, and research gaps and challenges in this unique population.
