The goal of this proposed project is to develop a new approach to curing mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE), one of the most commonly recognized forms of childhood-onset epilepsy. This study will investigate the transfer of progenitor cells to replace inhibitory neurons lost in patients with temporal lobe epilepsy as a means of re-establishing normal function.
