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.
Study reveals the mechanisms behind distinct patterns of electrical activity in neuron groups that accompany the onset of seizures.
A new study reports a potential new treatment for seizures which often occur in children with genetic metabolic disorders and people with liver failure.
A new study considers the medical benefits of using marijuana to help treat epilepsy which can not be controlled with standard anticonvulsants.
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.
Alterations in the local network of specific brain regions can predict the progression of epilepsy, and determine whether surgery is a viable option for the patient.
Researchers discover a link between the dynamics of seizures and spreading depression associated with migraine auras.
A pioneering ultrasound treatment could help treat hypothalamic hamartomas, a rare, benign mass in the brain that can cause epilepsy symptoms and unintentional giggling seizures.
Specific transfer RNAs (tRNAs) are associated with epilepsy. The levels of tRNA fragments in blood samples are higher pre-seizure. The findings provide a novel biomarker for the detection of seizures prior to their occurrence.
Researchers report EEG technology can help to predict the onset of epileptic seizures up to four minutes in advance. Additionally, acetate, an edible acid, may help to prevent seizures if they are detected with enough notice.
