We are sequencing the exomes of patients with paroxysmal neurological disorders mainly focusing on migraine and epilepsy. Cases are collected from performance sites of members of the International Headache Genetics consortium and EuroEPINOMICS. Most cases have a strong family history. The study sample will include both cases and controls.
