A new study explores which of the two main patterns of brain activity may be seen during the onset of an epileptic seizure.
Researchers look at evolving epileptic brain networks to obtain a better understanding of brain activity in those with epilepsy.
Halting neurogenesis following TBI can help reduce epileptic seizures, a new study reports.
Researchers have developed a computational model which can more accurately predict when the next epileptic seizure will occur by using a patient's personalized medical information.
By turning skin cells of patients with Dravet syndrome into neurons, researchers create a miniature testing ground for 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.
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.
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.
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.
Researchers at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center report that molecular disruptions in small neurons called granule cells – located in the dentate gyrus region of the brain – caused brain seizures in mice similar to those seen in human temporal lobe epilepsy.
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.
