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.
Adults who experienced traumatic events, including abuse and household dysfunction, as children had an increased risk of developing neurological conditions later in life. Additionally, researchers found a significant link between childhood trauma and depression and anxiety in adulthood.
Researchers report that after an aggressive encounter, mice who 'won' a fight showed signs of new neuron growth in the hippocampus.
