Overview

My research investigates disruption of typical brain development when the foetus is exposed in the womb to certain prescribed medications.  Over the last decade our group has conducted a number of large prospective longitudinal observational studies documenting the neurodevelopmental outcomes in children exposed in utero to antiepileptic drugs. One of these drugs - sodium valproate, was found to be associated with a substantially increased risk of poorer postnatal cognitive and social development. Our work has helped to change prescribing practices for women with epilepsy.
