    In a ground-breaking new study which appears online in the Annals of Neurology, neurologist and neuroscientist Dr. Tallie Z. Baram and her colleagues, discovered:
    "Understanding how previous brain infections, seizures or injuries can interact with the cellular machinery to cause epilepsy is a crucial step toward designing drugs to prevent the process.
    We don't want to just treat people with epilepsy. We hope to develop medicines that will prevent epilepsy from occurring — and influence the lives of millions of people around the globe."
