The epilepsies are a group of disorders characterised by recurrent seizures caused by episodes of abnormal neuronal hyperexcitability involving the brain. Up to 60 million people are affected worldwide and genetic factors may contribute to the aetiology in up to 40% of patients. The most common human genetic epilepsies display a complex pattern of(More)
A previous study of 34 nuclear pedigrees segregating juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME) gave significant evidence of linkage with heterogeneity to marker loci on chromosome 15q13-14 close to the candidate gene CHRNA7 (Hum. Mol. Genet. 6 (1997) 1329). The aim of this work was to further evaluate the putative aetiological role of CHRNA7 in JME within the 34(More)
Linkage analysis in separately ascertained families of probands with juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME) has previously provided evidence both for and against the existence of a locus (designated "EJM1"), on chromosome 6p, predisposing to a trait defined as either clinical JME, its associated electroencephalographic abnormality, or idiopathic generalized(More)
