Welcome to the EU-GliaPhD blog!
Here we will report on the latest developments in the field of epilepsy research.
But first, who are we?
We are a network of European neuroscientists, early stage researchers and experienced principal investigators. Our goal is to provide high quality information on epilepsy research to the public.
Our information will be mixed, i.e. targeting a lay audience, but also colleagues in the field.
Here, we start with a very recent article in which the most influential publications and journals of the last 5 to 10 years are highlighted. This set of data provides basic information where an interested person can find reliable research results.
Epilepsy-Specific Citation Classics Revisited
Take a look also on the prominent involvement of astrocytes in ictogenesis, where neuron–astrocyte interaction may represent a novel target to develop effective therapeutic strategies to control seizures: https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pbio.1000352, as well as on a description of a brain slice model
to study the generation and the propagation of focally-induced epileptiform activity: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jneumeth.2015.04.001
