This study will estimate how fast two antiepileptic drugs (Levetiracetam and Brivaracetam) enter the human brain. Brain imaging will be used to measure how quickly the radioactive probe [11C]UCB-J exits the brain when Levetiracetam or Brivaracetam are given. This will be used to estimate how fast the antiepileptic drugs enter the brain.
