Welcome to the Neonatal Seizure Registry

Our mission is to advance treatment and care of children who had seizures as neonates.

The Neonatal Seizure Registry (NSR) is an alliance of US centers that have worked together since 2012 to study early onset seizures. The NSR investigators, along with parent and community partners, have worked together to evaluate more than 800 children and families to answer important questions related to the causes and consequences of neonatal acute symptomatic seizures and epilepsy. Participating centers follow the American Clinical Neurophysiology Society guidelines for electroencephalography (EEG) monitoring of high-risk newborns.
