There are many more people still to come and to pick up their handouts and their interesting piece of equipment and come and sit down. Weíd like to get started and indeed we will. Iím Peter Camfield and along with my Co-Chair Dr. Elinor Ben-Menachem, Iíd like to welcome you to the American Epilepsy Society Annual Course. And as you know this yearís topic is Problems for People with Epilepsy beyond Seizures. I have to give just a few introductory housekeeping things, number one and most important is please turn off your cellphones, and if you have a beeper turn it to vibration. Obviously, this course is sponsored by the American Epilepsy Society. Itís also available in part on the AES website that youíre familiar with. The course is supported by educational grants from Abbott Laboratories, Cyberonics, and Glaxo Smith Kline Pharmaceuticals and weíre grateful for that. Preparing a course of this magnitude is an enormous task and I want to thank in advance todayís speakers and I sincerely hope at the end of the day they will still talk to me. You will see that every speaker today is a world expert on their topic and we have, as a group, chosen them not only for their expertise but for their ability to teach. Disclosures, the AES policy requires that faculty-presenting CME activities disclose to the audience any real or apparent conflicts of interest and indicate any unlabeled or unapproved uses of drugs or medical devices. In this way the AES adheres to the ACCMEís essential areas and elements regarding industry support of CME. So weíre absolutely clean. In addition, all slides for the day have been independently reviewed for commercial bias by myself and a member of the AES committee.
 The Medical Education Evaluator and Certificates: Since 2004, AES meeting attendees may use the Medical Education Evaluator, which allows you to complete the pre and post test for the course and course evaluations. You can also track CME credits and put out a certificate for category one CME credits, CE or pharmacy certification. In your handout, there is a page that tells you how to do this. You access the Evaluator, you go to the AES website at www.aesnet.org, itís in the handout, and you click on the Medical Education Evaluator. You will need to retain your badge number, thatís the number you have for the meeting and a password and thatís explained as well. The online evaluator closes on January 31, 2007, so you must complete the evaluation and credit tracking by that date. The certificates are saved to your personal account page and you can print them out at anytime and if you like print two copies, one for your mother for the holidays. Pre and post test questions: To measure the effectiveness of this CME activity, we look at the pre and post test questions. Thank you very much for taking the time to complete these online to help the AES and the Annual Course Committee assess learning objectives and plan for future activities. Now for this course, we want you to have, if you wish, an opportunity to ask questions of todayís faculty. The Annual Course Committee talked about this and we have not found that questions from the floor in such a huge audience are very helpful. So instead, at the end of each section of the course, so before coffee break or just at the first coffee break at lunch and in the afternoon coffee break and at the end of the day, the presenters will remain at the front and if you have a brilliant question you can come and ask of the faculty one on one.
 So just a little overview of the day, and Iíll be very brief. We hope very much that you all know already that most people with epilepsy have problems of extending well beyond the seizures themselves. Some of these issues are obviously sociable, some are personal, some are related to the biologic effects of epilepsy on the brain. Todayís course is divided into four sections: Social Issues in Pediatrics, Social Issues in Adults, Psychiatric Issues, Behavioral Issues, and General Health Issues. The speakers have tried very hard to make each talk interesting. We want you to stay awake and engage with us and not spend most of the day sleeping or immersed in your lurid fantasies. So, there are many short presentations, most will be between 10 and 20 minutes only. Thereíll be three lively debates to indicate boundaries of our knowledge. And most of the talks will be accompanied by audience response questions. For you to learn how to use this magic equipment, and for us to learn a little bit more about you as an audience, I have a few introductory questions. So, question number one, and you have a little button, will you please push the one that applies to you, you are, and youíre one of these six categories. I can hear you clicking away. And Frank is going to help me here because I donít know exactly how long is it going to be on for.
 I suspect we are ready to go to the answer now, if itís possible. All right, so now you get to see whoís there. And there are a lot of others, and thatís very interesting to us. And weíll be very fascinated as to know who you are. Next question please. How old are you? Please tell the truth. I suspect we could go on to the answer as soon as we can Frank. So you are between 30 and 50. Youíre a young audience. Very few less than 30, which is interesting in terms of demographics, and quite a lot of us old guys. And the next one. And here I canít see the question, but the question is, where do you live?
 Okay. So a lot of people from USA, not too surprising. A lot of great Canadians, bravo. Europeans, well represented. Quite a number of Asians and other countries as well. And do we have one more? Iíve forgotten. How many patients do you see in an average week with epilepsy? So most of you are very engaged in seeing people directly with epilepsy, so this should be quite a sophisticated audience and I'm sure we will resonate well with each other. So I think thatís the end of the ... questions for introduction, I think you have demonstrated the ability to push the buttons and I thank you for that. And I hope you will use these through the day. If itís possible, if you can maintain the same seat or the same ... machine that allows us for some very interesting cross correlations at the end of this study or this day. But donít feel fanatical about that.
