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.
According to a new study, epileptic patients brains send signals that create empty memories in the period of time between seizures and normalcy.
