In class this week, we will learn about Martin Kearney’s struggle with epilepsy and the two brain surgeries he underwent to help Blasket descendants and all people struggling with epilepsy, neurologists, neurosurgeons and familial epilepsy genetics researchers understand more about epilepsy in their work toward finding answers and a cure.
This post will serve as a space for sharing reflections on, ideas and inquiries about, and responses to my video interviews – as well as found resources while cybersleuthing, and during discussions and other research activities.
