A new study explores which of the two main patterns of brain activity may be seen during the onset of an epileptic seizure.
Scientists have observed the neurological mechanism behind temperature-dependent febrile seizures by genetically engineering fruit flies to harbor a mutation analogous to one that causes epileptic seizures in people. Their new study also highlights the first use of genetic engineering to swap a human genetic disease mutation into a directly analogous gene in a fly.
By turning skin cells of patients with Dravet syndrome into neurons, researchers create a miniature testing ground for epilepsy
Halting neurogenesis following TBI can help reduce epileptic seizures, a new study reports.
UC Irvine neuroscientists have developed a way to stop epileptic seizures with fiber-optic light signals, heralding a novel opportunity to treat the most severe manifestations of the brain disorder.
Researchers look at evolving epileptic brain networks to obtain a better understanding of brain activity in those with epilepsy.

A new study found adults in sub-Saharan Africa who had been exposed to parasitic disease were 1.5 to 3 times more likely to have epilepsy.
In a promising finding for epileptic patients suffering from persistent seizures known as status epilepticus, researchers reported today that new medication could help halt these devastating seizures.
Researchers published a study outlining how a new type of non-invasive brain scan taken immediately after a seizure gives additional insight into possible causes and treatments for epilepsy patients.
