Deficits in the dentate gyrus function that causes memory problems may be associated with epileptic seizures a new study reports. The abnormal activity leads to over-extinction, spurring on seizures.
Researchers believe they have found a cause of memory loss in epilepsy patients by recording single neurons in the brain.
A new study implicated interneurons and pyramidal cells in the ability of a seizure to spread through the brain.
Functional connectivity problems associated with temporal lobe epilepsy appear to improve after surgery.
According to a new mathematical model of seizures, only the conductivity of the AMPA receptors in neurons in the temporal lobe significantly change, leading to stronger excitation and synaptic signals.
Researchers report mice with epilepsy have alterations in neural pattern activity in an area of the brain that controls the reproductive endocrine system.
Researchers have implicated mossy cells in both seizures and memory problems in those with temporal lobe epilepsy.
Study reveals both similarities and differences in how the left and right sides of the brain process semantic memory.
Researchers provide more real, scientific explanations as to why some people are convinced they have experienced alien encounters.
