A new study reports cannabidiol, a marijuana derivative, is effective at reducing seizure frequency in children and adults with treatment resistant epilepsy.
GLuCEST neuroimaging technique detects buildup of glutamate in the brain, highlighting where epileptic seizures are likely to occur.
A new study appears to support the neural noise hypothesis, which proposes the signal to noise ratio in neural circuits diminishes with aging.
For the first time, researchers have successfully stimulated a human amygdala and recorded breathing loss. Their research provides important insight into SUDEP.
Researchers report cannabidiol could help treat children with severe epilepsy who have not responded to other therapies.
A new study explores the reliability of optogenetics as an intervention for temporal lobe epilepsy.
Stimulating the thalamus and other areas of the brain stem connected with wakefulness can help bring rats back to consciousness after a seizure, new research reports.
Researchers discover a link between the dynamics of seizures and spreading depression associated with migraine auras.
Researchers claim to have identified a switch in the brain of people with epilepsy which dictates whether their seizures will be mild or lead to a loss of consciousness.
A new study reports a potential new treatment for seizures which often occur in children with genetic metabolic disorders and people with liver failure.
Scientists turn EEG recordings of normal and seizure state brain activity into music. The work could lead to a new biofeedback tool to identify brain activity associated with seizures.
