Aim of the course is to teach attendees to: (1) utilize basic knowledge for imaging and electrophysiological study of candidate patients to epilepsy surgery; (2) describe nature and evolution of surgically remediable epilepsies; (3) recognize and select patients with drug-resistant epilepsy that may benefit of surgical approach; (4) plan neurophysiological, video EEG and imaging investigations and interpret their results in the clinical context; (5) run and manage a team that collaborate in a Epilepsy Surgery Unit. The course is primarily targeted at neurologists, neuropediatricians, neurophysiologists, neuroradiologists and neurosurgeons interested in the pathophysiology, diagnosis and management of pharmacoresistant epilepsies, and in research programs implementing in an epilepsy surgery unit.
Specific didactic material and equipment for practical sessions will be prepared, including EEGs and video EEGs, MRI, CT and angiographic films, software for EEG and experimental electrophysiological analysis. Students will be allowed to freely access the didactic material in a computer room and in other dedicated spaces.
The course is supported by the European Commission, in the context of the EPILEARN project, funded by the Marie Curie Actions of the Sixth Framework Programme (contract number: MSCF-CT-2005-029641).
