Brain Exploration and Epilepsy Surgery
The San Servolo Epilepsy Summer Course has acquired a reputation as one of the most attractive and challenging training experiences in epilepsy for students and faculties. The 11th edition of the Course in 2013 focused on surgically remediable epilepsies. The faculty, composed of leading experts with International reputation, taught attendees to utilize basic knowledge, imaging and electro-clinical data to recognize and select patients with drug-resistant epilepsy who may benefit of a surgical approach.
