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.
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.
Seizures associated with Alzheimer's disease in both animal models and humans alter hippocampal neurogenesis. Treating mice with antiseizure medications normalized neurogenesis and improved spatial discrimination.
Study reveals a molecular action that enables cilantro to effectively delay seizures. One component of cilantro, dodecenal, binds to a specific part of the potassium channel to open them, reducing cellular excitability.
Researchers have developed what they have dubbed a 'brain stethoscope', a device capable of turning EEG brain wave data into sound. The device is able to detect epileptic seizures that do not result in convulsions.
A new study explores which of the two main patterns of brain activity may be seen during the onset of an epileptic seizure.
Researchers created a computer model based on direct brain recordings from epilepsy patients and discover the existence of a network of neural regions directly involved in seizures.
Alterations in the excitation and inhibition balance is regulated in the developing brain by astrocytes via the ephrin-B1 protein. The loss of astrocytic ephrin-B1 alters the E/I balance by reducing inhibition, resulting in hyperactivity of neural circuits. The hyperactivity results in reduced sociability in mice.
