The term autoimmune epilepsy was coined in Oxford and we continue to be a leading centre for research into this area (please see Oxford Autoimmune Neurology Group for full details).

In particular we are interested in the role of LGI1, CASPR2, NMDA and GAD antibodies in epilepsy.

Caption: Jerks affecting the arm, leg and face, so termed faciobrachial dystonic seizures are considered pathognomonic of LGI1 associated epilepsy, one of the autoimmune epilepsies that we are studying here in Oxford
