This symposium presents information on the translational perspectives on the current state of knowledge related to sex differences in the neurobiology of epilepsy in experimental research and clinical practice. Emerging information on the therapeutic applications of hormonal therapy in the treatment of epilepsy will be presented as will strategies for facilitating collaboration with experts in reproductive medicine. The evidence for neuroactive steroids/hormonal interventions in the management of patients’ epilepsy will be discussed.
Following participation in this activity, learners should be able to:
- Discuss the sex differences in the neurobiology, etiology, and treatment of epilepsy
- Recognize sex-related differences in epilepsy presentation and response to therapy
- Describe the impact of hormonal influences in the epilepsy expression, temporal fluctuation, and severity and discuss the therapeutic application of neuroactive steroid/hormonal therapy in the treatment of epilepsy
Neurologists, epileptologists, pediatric neurologists, basic scientists, neuroscientists
