Maladaptive Myelination in Pediatric Epilepsy
Mar 01, 2021 (Mon) | 12:00 PM -1:00 PM
Webinar link will be sent after registration. : Zoom, CA
Maladaptive myelination in epilepsy may represent a novel pathogenic mechanism in neurological diseases that can be targeted in the development of disease-modifying therapeutics. In this talk, Drs. Michelle Monje and Juliet Knowles will speak on a newly-appreciated form of brain plasticity, activity-dependent myelination, and how it may become maladaptive in children with epilepsy. Dr. Monje is a pediatric neuro-oncologist and neuroscientist whose lab published pioneering work on activity-dependent myelination and neuron-glioma interactions. Dr. Knowles is a neuroscientist and child neurologist specializing in the treatment of children with epilepsy. She will discuss her discovery of a novel pathogenic mechanism in pediatric generalized epilepsy.
