Study 1: Data detailed in "Genetic interactions among cortical malformation genes that influence susceptibility to convulsions in C. elegans" have been presented. "Epilepsy is estimated to affect 1-2% of the world population, yet remains poorly understood at a molecular level. We have previously established the roundworm Caenorhabditis elegans as a model for investigating genetic susceptibilities to seizure-like convulsions in vivo," researchers in the United States report.
"Here we investigate the behavioral consequences of decreasing the activity of...
