"Gene discovery in autosomal recessive epilepsy"
Administered by Epilepsy Foundation Funding 2007/2008 Academic Year The goal of this project is to identify genes that, when changed, cause epilepsy and seizures. Large families with epilepsy in whom marriage between blood relatives are common will be investigated. Characterizing the epilepsy gene in these families can be applied to other individuals from other populations.
