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 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.
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 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 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 apply machine learning algorithms to EEG data to create a new method of predicting when epileptic seizures will strike.
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 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.
