This is a Must Segment for everyone interested in the Genetics of Epilepsy. Co-hosts Dr. Daniel Lowenstein and Dr. Orrin Devinsky talk about the largest research study ever created to understand how genetics influences epilepsy. The Epilepsy Phenome/Genome Project is a collaborative effort among some of the country's leading epileptologists and the National Institutes of Health to investigate the causes of epilepsy and the differences in how people respond to anti-seizure medication. Dr. Lowenstein is the Professor and Vice Chairman of the UCSF Department of Neurology, and Dr. Orrin Devinsky is the Co-Founder of the Epilepsy Therapy Project and Professor of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry and Director, NYU Comprehensive Epilepsy Center.
