Researchers at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center report that molecular disruptions in small neurons called granule cells – located in the dentate gyrus region of the brain – caused brain seizures in mice similar to those seen in human temporal lobe epilepsy.
UC Irvine neuroscientists have developed a way to stop epileptic seizures with fiber-optic light signals, heralding a novel opportunity to treat the most severe manifestations of the brain disorder.
A new study identifies a receptor which could be key to preventing epilepsy following a prolonged period of seizures.
Researchers have identified a new and more accurate way to determine which portions of the brain suffer from epilepsy. The information could provide patients and doctors with better information as to whether temporal lobe surgery will provide the best treatment outcome.
Patients with temporal lobe epilepsy have widespread, abnormal connections in their brains. The finding could provide new clues for diagnosis and treatment, a new study suggests.
Transplanted neurons derived from stem cells shown to be effective in treating epilepsy in mice, a new study reports.
A new study explores the reliability of optogenetics as an intervention for temporal lobe epilepsy.
Is belief in God innate in our brains, as if it were installed by some divine programmer? Or is spirituality a more complex evolving adaptation that has both helped and harmed us as a species? National Geographic's Brain Games asks Neuroscience News.
According to a new study, epileptic patients brains send signals that create empty memories in the period of time between seizures and normalcy.
