Brief description Epilepsy is a common brain disorder affecting approximately 50 million people worldwide. The most common type of epilepsy is known as focal epilepsy. Our group has recently shown the importance of genetic mutations as causes of focal epilepsy. Using modern genomic technologies we will identify new genes in focal epilepsy. We will make animal models of these genes to better understand the pathobiology of epilepsy so that new treatments can be developed for patients.
