PHAR-593 Topics in Epilepsy
Spring for 2017-2018
Deciphering pathological synchronization and normal brain function: The epilepsies are a diverse group of neurological disorders, characterized by recurrent seizures. In this course, we will examine the major types of epilepsy through the lens of animal models and neural circuits. Using a combination of classic papers in epilepsy and more recent literature, we will evaluate the validity and utility of common models of epilepsy, the state of our circuit-level understanding of the epilepsies, and use these circuit maps to deepen our understanding of normal brain functions. This course will be heavily (if not exclusively) discussion based.
