Merritt-Putnam Symposium: Multiscale Imaging of Seizures & Epilepsy - 2016 Annual Meeting Recording

Award Presentation: William G. Lennox Award

OVERVIEW 
One of the grand goals of neuroscience is to understand how the interplay of structural, chemical and electrical signals in and between cells of brain tissue gives rise to function and disease. There is an emerging arsenal of tools and technologies for obtaining imaging data spanning multiple scales from molecules, cells, assemblies, networks and nervous systems that are poised to impact our understanding of epilepsy and advance therapeutic options for our patients. This session will present the latest evidence in neuroscience of which clinicians need to be aware in order to provide optimal patient care. Strategies for counseling patients and their families regarding the effect of surgery on memory circuits will be discussed.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
Following participation in this session, learners should be able to:

  • Describe the advances in structural and functional imaging and delineate their role in predicting epilepsy surgery outcomes and memory impact.
  • Review and discuss the emerging evidence for cellular imaging in focal epilepsy.
  • Counsel patients and families regarding the impact of surgery on memory circuits and the association with prognosis.
