Molecular clues to an inherited epilepsy
At the cellular and molecular level, epileptic seizures are not completely understood. Researchers at Vanderbilt University report in the June 13 issue of Neuron how genetic mutations associated with an inherited form of epilepsy can perturb the electrical properties of brain cells. Their findings support a plausible mechanism for epilepsy and suggest novel tools for drug testing and development.
