"Calcineruin-dependent Modulation of Neuronal Excitability in Status Epilepticus"
Administered by the Epilepsy Foundation Funding Term 2005/2006 Academic Year Status Epilepticus (SE) is a life-threatening medical emergency consisting of continuous seizure activity. Often, patients with SE often do not respond to anti-seizure drugs. This research will examine an important neuronal enzyme as a mechanism that may be responsible for the development of drug resistance in SE.
