Exciting new technologies are emerging that allow analysis of the properties of individual cells with increasing ease. With the diverse cell populations that make up the brain, embracing this complexity can provide new insight into brain function and dysfunction. In this workshop, we will describe novel single-cell approaches to understand cellular complexity including single cell RNAseq, genomics, and more. The workshop will also include a hands on component to give participants experience in the environments used to analyze single-cell RNAseq data using a sample data set. This workshop will be
SIG: Clinical Epilepsy for the Advanced Practice Provider: Case Review: Challenging Management Cases in the Epilepsy Clinic
Three APP speakers will present challenging clinical cases highlighting a unique diagnosis and treatment technique: pediatric and adult cases involving medical, surgical and genetic therapies included.
The common use of computer networks for the transfer of EEG data files now allows for immediate inpatient and emergency department EEG interpretations. With this, physicians in emergency departments and intensive care units now expect EEG testing to be more readily available and that a subspecialist will provide an EEG interpretation as care decisions are being made, regardless of the time and day. As such, EEG infrastructure and EEG practice are both changing, and old questions about when and how to best utilize EEG are returning for reconsideration in a
Precision medicine' is a term frequently used in reference to therapies for genetic epilepsies, but what is it and has it arrived? If not, why not and what will it take to get there? In this SIG we are planning a lively debate regarding the reality of precision medicine (PM) in the current era of accelerated genomic discoveries. Precision medicine has been declared in several instances, but there is a sense that we are far from where we need to be. With this debate, the real promise of therapeutic approaches
Despite its acceptance as part of the standard of care and its routine clinical use in epilepsy centers where it is available, magnetoencephalography remains mysterious to most neurologists - and even to many epileptologists. In particular, they are puzzled as to when MEG can be very helpful, and in which cases MEG is unlikely to add any additional information. Even beyond a misunderstanding of the indications themselves, apprehension and a lack of knowledge regarding the technical aspects has led to the perception that there are many limitations of MEG, most
