#AESmtg14 highlights: Epilepsy as a spectrum disorder (or, another conference already?!)

I have been extremely lucky this year to be able to attend both the Society for Neuroscience’s (#SfN14) and the American Epilepsy Society’s (#AESmtg14) annual meetings in close succession. And as I did for the SFN, I will be live-tweeting and blogging about the AES meeting over the next few days.

To get started, here is a Storify collection of my live-tweeting of the opening lecture, the Judith Hoyer lecture, given by Dr. Frances Jensen from the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Jensen made the case for envisioning epilepsy as a spectrum disorder. In my opinion, it was the ideal way of opening the meeting, with insightful and thought-provoking ideas on how to broaden our vision of epilepsy research.

Stay tuned for more exciting research on epilepsy, its neural underpinnings, its consequences and its therapies from #AESmtg14!
