Modeling of Post-Traumatic Epilepsy and Experimental Research aimed at its Prevention

Research on the prevention of post-traumatic epilepsy has made important advances in recent years. Based on the search for biomarkers that may indicate individual susceptibility and unveil pathophysiological mechanisms, the development of new animal models focusing on different factors related to brain injury and the investigation of new drugs and treatment techniques, the general understanding of the epileptogenic process has prospered. Together, the different approaches favor the understanding of this relevant, but not yet preventable, medical condition.
