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.
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.
