About

Epilepsies are a family of devastating disorders characterized by spontaneous, recurrent seizures. It is one of the most common brain disorders and considered the most burdensome neurologic disorder worldwide. ​Available pharmacological treatments are only symptomatic, often with side effects and fail to adequately control seizures in one third of patients.

A 3D-map of the structural changes, underlying the pathological hyperexcitable network leading to seizures, could give us the directions needed to reverse and thus cure epilepsy.
