Morphometric Analysis Core (NS090406)

Specific Aims and Tasks

The Morphometric Analysis Core unifies comprehensive clinical, physiological, and structural analysis of a large population of pediatric and adult epilepsy patients at high SUDEP risk. It is designed for reciprocal support of patient centered research in SUDEP genetic, physiologic, cellular, and model biological mechanisms.
