Research Description

Clinical pharmacology of experimental antiepileptic drugs and development of novel therapies for refractory epilepsy are examined through the infrastructure of the Epilepsy Clinical Research Program. The natural history of epilepsy is studied through a large clinical relational database. Investigations of nonconvulsive status epilepticus are intended to define its pathophysiology, classification and natural history. Basic science research collaborations include examining the role of mitochondrial genetic abnormalities in human temporal lobe epilepsy.
