Researchers establish SCN3A genetic mutations cause infantile epileptic encephalopathy.
A new system translates EEG data into a 3D movie which shows activity in all recorded regions of the brain. The heat map shows where seizures start and spread throughout the patient's brain, in addition to evaluating the speed of activity during a seizure.
A new study reports researchers have identified a new gene implicated in a progressive form of epilepsy.
Researchers claim to have identified a switch in the brain of people with epilepsy which dictates whether their seizures will be mild or lead to a loss of consciousness.
New abortion bans and restrictions could result in life-threatening consequences for women of childbearing age with epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, and migraine due to restrictions placed on their ability to access life-saving medications. Patients in states with strict abortion restrictions are reporting they are unable to access teratogenic drugs to treat their conditions, including methotrexate, as the medications can induce abortion.
