SCN8A is a gene that encodes a voltage-gated sodium channel that plays an important role in regulating excitability in the brain.
SCN8A.net offers a new vision for helping those living with, treating and/or researching SCN8A, facilitating communication among families, physicians and scientists. We engage in research aimed at improving the quality of life for those with SCN8A.
