Research urged on brain injury, epilepsy linkArmy Times said:Two senators who don’t agree on much in politics have agreed on one thing: the federal government needs to study a possible link between traumatic brain injury and epilepsy.
Sens. Patty Murray, D-Wash., and Larry Craig, R-Idaho, are co-sponsoring legislation to establish six epilepsy research and treatment centers across the U.S. The location of the “centers of excellence” would be determined by the Veterans Affairs Department.
Murray is one of the more liberal members of the Senate and Craig is one of its most conservative, but they made a joint announcement Monday of a plan to set aside $6 million a year for centers of research, treatment and education programs related to the incidence of epilepsy in current and future veterans.
