The e-Lab strives for the neuroscientific understanding of epilepsy with the final goal of translating novel knowledge for human benefit. The e-Lab brings together talented researchers in neuroscience from different backgrounds that share the ambition to crack the most mysterious aspects of epilepsy. One unifying question we have is «why does a seizure occur at a particular moment in time?».
