New Causative Gene Found in Severe Childhood Epilepsy

Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

A large international research team has discovered a new genetic cause for a severe, difficult-to-treat childhood epilepsy syndrome. Spontaneous mutations in one gene disrupt the flow of calcium in brain cells, resulting in epileptic overactivity.

Scientists Uncover How Rare Gene Mutation Affects Brain Development and Memory

University of California, Irvine

Researchers from the University of California, Irvine School of Medicine, have found that a rare gene mutation alters brain development in mice, impairing memory and disrupting the communication between nerve cells. They also show memory problems could be improved by transplanting a specific type of nerve cell into the brain. The findings were published today in Neuron.
