Discovery by EPITARGET researchers in Bonn

EPITARGET researchers discover an epilepsy switch

 

A team from EPITARGET partner University of Bonn uses a new approach to solve an old mystery

 

Scientists at the University of Bonn and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Israel) have decoded a central signal cascade associated with epileptic seizures. If the researchers blocked a central switch in epileptic mice, the frequency and severity of the seizures decreased. Using a novel technology, it was possible to observe the processes prior to the occurrence of epileptic seizures in living animals. The results are now being undefinedpublished in the journal "Nature Communications". The respective mechanism represents both a therapy target as well as a biomarker for epileptogenesis.
