New developments in epilepsy research: investigating neuronal networks in rodents and humans

As part of NeuroFrance 2019, the Society of Neuroscience ( is organizing a translational neuroscience research workshop on the theme of epilepsy on May 21, 2019 at the INMED.

This workshop, coordinated by Professor Fabrice Bartolomei and Dr. Represa has as main objectives:

  • to present in a didactic way the state of the art on a current topic in neuroscience,
  • to encourage interactions between young doctors and young researchers from different fields.

Epilepsy is the second neurological pathology in France, after Alzheimer's disease, with nearly 600,000 patients. Many forms of epilepsy have been identified that have different etiologies and severities.

Clinical manifestations of epilepsy may be considered as a consequence of pathologies of network dynamics and functional connectivity that may involve abnormal networks. Thanks to recent scientific progress, the identification of specific epilepsy networks, the analysis of their properties and their regulations is now progressing, opening up important therapeutic perspectives. The specific objective of this workshop is to provide a comprehensive view of the activity of neural epileptogenic networks, through experimental approaches, in animals, and studies in patients.

The workshop will take place at the INMED, Luminy campus in Marseille (France) on May 21, 2019. Registration for the workshop is mandatory: free until Mai 7th, 2019. After this date registration fees are 50 euros (to be paid locally by check or cash).
