Meeting Learning Objectives
At the end of the meeting, participants will be able to:
• recognize the global burden of epilepsy and identify international and national innovations that can and have made a difference locally and globally;
• describe factors contributing to the success and failures of epilepsy surgery including biomarkers, mapping of the epileptogenic zone, intracranial EEG investigations and margins of resection;
• discuss the impact and emerging insights of biological factors such as genetics and sex on childhood and adult epilepsies using disease models such as tuberous sclerosis and epileptic encephalopathy; and
• explore how network analysis and connectivity as well as neuromodulation can inform epilepsy therapy.
