Could metabolism play a role in epilepsy?
Date:2/19/2014

causesusing genetically modified, seizure-prone flies (a family of Drosophila flies called Bang-sensitive paralytic mutants). "It is well known that certain diets, such as the ketogenic diet, have effects on seizures, but there is little agreement on the mechanism behind this diet," said Dr. Kuebler, "This technique allows us to better address this question."

Dr. Kuebler chose to publish his method in a video format because of its capacity to communicate scientific procedures better than text. "The ability to show the seizure behavior visually, [showing] exactly how the recording is done, made the journal a much more attractive option than print only journals," said Dr. Kuebler, "This low cost system is simple enough to set up in an undergraduate teaching lab and can allow for students to do some inquiry based learning labs on a budget."
