Genetically Dissecting Cortical Neurons Involved in Epilepsy in Angelman Syndrome

Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey

Abstract

Epilepsy in Angelman Syndrome is thought to originate from an imbalance between local excitatory-inhibitory circuits that results in a generalized hyperexcitability. In this issue of Neuron, Judson et al. (2016) demonstrate that selective maternal deletion of Ube3a in cortical GABAergic neurons causes circuit hyperexcitability, increased seizure severity, and EEG abnormalities.
