Clinical Services - Periodic Paralysis, Myotonia, and Episodic Ataxia Clinic

The focus of the Periodic Paralysis, Myotonia, and Episodic Ataxia Clinic is to provide clinical services for patients with these neurologic channelopathies. Dr. Robert C Griggs, Professor and Chair of the Department of Neurology, has had a career-long interest in clinical care and research of channelopathies. Neurologic channelopathies are caused by a genetic mutation that affects the function of ion channels in cell membranes.
