This conference will focus on the roles played by ligand-gated signaling in epileptiform synchronization and epileptogenesis. To this end, a Faculty of prominent researchers from Canada, Europe and USA will gather at the Montreal Neurological Institute of McGill University to review their most recent studies and to discuss the contribution of neuronal and glial networks to the pathophysiology of epileptic disorders.
Specific topics will include:

Ligand-gated signaling genes and epileptic disorders

EEG and metabolic patterns in patients with focal epileptic disorders

Ligand-gated mechanisms as determinants for focal seizures occurrence

Synaptic plasticity and epileptogenesis

Circadian rhythm and epileptic synchronization

Synaptic signaling as a target for curing epileptic disorders
