by Kate Wighton, Neuroscience News

Scientists have discovered a gene network in the brain associated with epilepsy

The team, led by scientists at Imperial College London, believe the discovery may lead to more treatments for the condition.

The study, published in the journal Genome Biology, has revealed an ‘epileptic network’ of 320 genes, called M30, that is associated with the condition. The genes in the network are thought to be involved in how brain cells communicate with each other. Continue reading Researchers Identify New Epilepsy Gene Network
