We had a tremendous reaction to the Yes, I can! photography competition with more than 300 entries from all corners of the world. Our cover for this issue features a happy image, the winning photo in the mobile phone/ tablet category. You can find more winning images in the issue.

Joanna Burzec shares with us the story of her very rare form of epilepsy, which involves music, which you will find very interesting indeed. We are grateful to Joanna for sharing her experience with us.

Ted Reynolds brings us the next episode of the fascinating story of ILAE, which had been held back from the last issue. Already I am looking forward to Part 10!

International Epilepsy Day was particularly successful in the European Parliament, where no less than 35 private meetings were held with Members of the European Parliament.

Also in this issue is news of a very special offer on registration fees for the Epilepsy & Society Conference in Prague, news from Swaziland and Uruguay and much more besides.


Until next time – good reading,
