In memoriam: Colin David Binnie (1938-2019)

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Prof. Colin David Binnie, clinical neurophysiologist, on 21st March 2019. Colin had a long and distinguished career in clinical neurophysiology. Colin played a major role in a number of early phase drug studies, notably the early studies of Lamotrigine and developed the model of photosensitivity as a method for acute single dose efficacy studies of potential AEDs. Also he was active as initiator or participant in a number of international projects in the fields of computer assisted spike detection and digital EEG.

Therefore, AEDs should be considered as add-on treatment, and similar to treatment of other encephalitis symptoms, immunotherapy is crucial.
