Other: The purpose of the Behavioral Sciences Post-doctoral Fellowship Program is to support the post-doctoral training of behavioral scientists committed to epilepsy research. The Foundation’s Fellowships offer qualified individuals the opportunity to develop expertise in epilepsy research through a one-year training experience and involvement in a research project that has potential significance for understanding the causes, treatment, or consequences of epilepsy. The Behavioral Sciences Post-Doctoral Fellowship develops excellent behavioral scientists to teach the appropriate psychosocial intervention techniques used in working with people with epilepsy, and contributes to the body of behavioral research in epilepsy.
