Developmental Phenotype Of Seizure-Prone Mice
Stephen C. Heinrichs, PhD
Boston College Department of Psychology
In a mouse model of epilepsy, Dr. Heinrichs will examine the role of parental care during early development in halting or delaying the onset of seizures. Better understanding of the importance of early environment could allow for the design of non-drug interventions, which could potentially be used in children who are at risk of developing epilepsy.
