My name is Dennis Lal, I am working on the genetics of rolandic epilepsy and idiopathic generalized epilepsies within the EuroEPINOMICS consortium. Like many scientists, I read a lot of publications, or well, at least the abstract. Roland and Ingo asked me repeatedly to write a post but I was afraid of losing too much time. But as a young and naive scientist you have to give things a try.That’s why I started commenting on my favorite papers of the week, collected here. This “experiment” is currently at 35 minutes (after several rounds of editing) and I aim to finish this blog post below 60 minutes.
