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 reports only half of infants under three months of age who have bacterial meningitis show traditional symptoms of the disease, such as high fever.
Researchers have identified monthly cycles of brain activity that are linked to seizures in people with epilepsy.
New fMRI techniques could help assess, diagnose and treat epilepsy in children.
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.
Researchers were able to dampen hyperexcitability associated with seizure disorders in rodent models by inducing biochemical alterations with glucosamine, a dietary supplement.
By capturing a cell by cell view of seizures propagating through a mouse brain, researchers discovered neurons fire in a sequential pattern, regardless of how quickly the seizure occurs. The findings confirm seizures are not a result of neurons going haywire.
