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.
A new study identifies a receptor which could be key to preventing epilepsy following a prolonged period of 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 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.
