A new publication by our Cluster member Prof. Heinz Beck shows, why the worldwide leading medication against epilepsy might not be suitable for a lot of patients.

The new findings published in the Journal of Neuroscience could lead to better and more effective therapies against epilepsy. This is of high importance since every third patient is not responding to the prescripted drugs these days.
