Researchers have developed a new model of mitochondrial epilepsy which captures specific features observed in patients. The new model may help provide better therapies and treatments for the condition.
Cannabidiol could help cut seizures by half in children and adults with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, an extremely severe form of epilepsy, researchers report.
Working with patients with electrodes implanted in their brains, researchers show that areas of the brain work simultaneously to recall memories. The approach promises new insights into how we remember details of time and place.
According to a new study, epileptic patients brains send signals that create empty memories in the period of time between seizures and normalcy.
Genetic testing can help identify children at risk of epilepsy, in addition to identifying new genetic mutations associated with the condition. Using CBD based medications can also help reduce seizures in children with epilepsy.
A new study highlights the potential reasons why many patients with severe epilepsy still continue to experience seizures even after surgery.
Following a seizure, deltaFosB remains in the hippocampus for an extensive period of time. Researchers believe this may contribute to memory loss and other cognitive deficits.
