Researchers have identified electrical activity in the brain that is specific to the start of migraines. The new study reports spreading depolarization can be seen as a migraine begins, and an electrical current can be used to stop it in its tracks.
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.
Researchers believe they have established a causal link between gut bacteria and seizure susceptibility. The study also identifies a specific bacteria that plays a critical role in the anti-seizure effects of the ketogenic diet.
Researchers have identified a new neurodevelopmental disorder. The study reveals the inherited disorder can produce learning difficulties and increase seizure risks. The researchers have implicated a recessive mutation in CAMK2A in this new disorder.
Researchers provide further evidence that the cannabis compound, CBD, is effective at reducing seizures in people with epilepsy. The new study reveals CBD significantly reduced seizures in people with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome. Previously, the researchers demonstrated CBD was effective at seizure control in Dravet syndrome.
