Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The development of epilepsy may be related to genetic and epigenetic factors often in combination with non-genetically determined structural brain abnormalities. Prevention of epileptogenesis (i.e., antiepileptogenic therapy) as well as suppression of seizures (i.e., antiepileptic therapy) is important for complete control of epilepsy. In this article, we will present recent advance to accomplish the goal in an age- and sex-specifi c fashion.
