Aims of the Symposium
During the last 20 years there have been impressive advances in our understanding of the mechanisms underlying common and rare epileptic
syndromes, particularly in the area of genetics. The objective of the present Conference is to highlight some key areas where findings from
genetic research have led to a truly major improvement in knowledge about mechanisms involved in brain development and in the
pathogenesis of several forms of epilepsy with onset in infancy and childhood. Special emphasis will be placed on practical aspects,
including the need to refine diagnostic criteria, to improve the efficiency of genetic testing, and to address implications for clinical management.
Unravelling the molecular mechanisms of epilepsies is already leading to the development and application of new and more effective precision
therapies which target directly the etiology of the disease rather than merely its symptoms. The Conference will also address other recent
advances in therapeutic research, from recently introduced plant-derived compounds to biomarker-driven disease-modifying interventions and to
innovative non-pharmacological treatments.
