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.
Study reveals both similarities and differences in how the left and right sides of the brain process semantic memory.
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.
A new study identifies a receptor which could be key to preventing epilepsy following a prolonged period of seizures.
According to a new study, epileptic patients brains send signals that create empty memories in the period of time between seizures and normalcy.
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.
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.
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.
Researchers have implicated mossy cells in both seizures and memory problems in those with temporal lobe epilepsy.
A new study explores the reliability of optogenetics as an intervention for temporal lobe epilepsy.
