Neurobiology of Disease
Workshop 2003: On-Line

Epilepsy: Genes and Molecular Plasticity

The Neurobiology of Disease Workshop is a yearly educational event at the Society for Neuroscience annual meeting.  The 2003 Neurobiology of Disease Workshop focused on epilepsy; specifically, the genetic and molecular aspects of epilespy. This set of on-line lectures shows the original slides and audio from all five lectures given during the 2003 workshop.

The workshop on epilepsy shown here took place on November 7, 2003, at the SfN meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA.  It was organized by SfN members Jeffrey L. Noebels, MD, PhD and Marc A. Dichter, MD, PhD.
