The Epilepsy Research Laboratories have a research focus on establishing a better understanding of the basic mechanisms of epilepsy and epileptogenesis. This effort is centered on the overarching idea that only by better understanding the fundamental, underlying determinants driving seizure disorders can we learn to better treat – and someday cure – these devastating neurologic conditions.
