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.
Researchers have identified a new key factor in the generation of febrile seizures. The findings could lead to new therapeutic treatments for fever induced seizures.
Working with patients with electrodes implanted in their brains, researchers show that areas of the brain work simultaneously to recall memories. The approach promises new insights into how we remember details of time and place.
In a promising finding for epileptic patients suffering from persistent seizures known as status epilepticus, researchers reported today that new medication could help halt these devastating seizures.
