8th International Summer School for Neuropathology and Epilepsy Surgery (INES 2018) University Hospital, Erlangen, Germany 26 – 29 July 2018 The 8th International Summer School for Neuropathology and Epilepsy Surgery will be designed to enable participants to better recognize and classify various histopathological substrates of pharmaco-resistant epilepsy. The workshop has been held in Germany, Brazil, USA and China since 2013, with continuous endorsement of the International League Against Epilepsy. Topics related to the diagnosis and treatment of human focal epilepsies will be presented by internationally renowned faculty. Advanced hands-on histopathology training will be offered in small groups led by distinguished tutors who will review and discuss microscopy slides of selected cases with different staining protocols. Participants will also have the opportunity to present their own cases for discussion with the entire group. Learning Objectives Discuss diagnostic evaluation of surgical specimens, with particular emphasis on mesial temporal lobe epilepsy with hippocampal sclerosis, epilepsy-associated tumors, malformations of cortical development, focal cortical dysplasia, vascular malformations, and encephalitis. Disseminate new and upcoming clinico-pathologic classification systems among the neuro-/pathology communities and to validate existing and up-coming consensus classification systems by a larger cohort of practicing neuro-/pathologists. Recognize and classify various histopathological substrates of pharmaco-resistant epilepsy. Target Audience Neuro-/Pathologists, Epileptologists, Neurosurgeons & Neurologists, Neuroimager and Basic Researcher Course language is English. Course Directors: Ingmar Blümcke & Roland Coras Registration Our summer school will be restricted to 26 attendees, which will be trained in small groups at the multihead microscope by expert tutors (see invitation flyer).
