Diagnosing Epilepsy

Shelly Callender’s daughter Addy started having seizures when she was 19 years old. “She said she didn’t know what happened; she didn’t think anything had happened, that she must have fallen asleep. It was just kind of hard to process what was really going on because we didn’t see it,” said Callender. With Addy having […]

How a web-based model helps predict epilepsy risk

How a web-based model helps predict epilepsy risk

Seizures can be scary for parents and children, but researchers from the Netherlands have developed a new model that can help determine the risk of epilepsy and guide future clinical pathways. Eric van Diessen, MD, PhD For children who have had 1 or more seizures, the model may help to determine the risk a child […]

Graphene-based implant overcomes technical limitation to record brain activity at extremely low frequencies

Graphene-based implant overcomes technical limitation to record brain activity at extremely low frequencies

The body of knowledge about the human brain is growing exponentially, but questions big and small remain unanswered. Researchers have been using electrode arrays to map electrical activity in different brain regions to understand brain function. Until now, however, these arrays have only been able to detect activity over a certain frequency threshold. A new […]

Artificial Intelligence Deep Learning Can Learn to Diagnose Epilepsy

Artificial Intelligence Deep Learning Can Learn to Diagnose Epilepsy

One type of artificial intelligence technology called “deep learning” is on its way to diagnosing epilepsy, according to new findings. As investigators from Georgia State University understood that some doctors have more experience than others, which can matter in making diagnoses, they asked themselves how artificial intelligence could help bridge the experience gap. As a […]

EEGs Offer Insights for Autistic Children with or without Epilepsy

EEGs Offer Insights for Autistic Children with or without Epilepsy

Abnormal electroencephalography (EEG) results or epilepsy in patients with autism suggest worsening development and adaptive functioning, according to new findings. Researchers from Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center studied 443 patients with autism in order to determine the relationship between epilepsy presence and/or abnormal EEG results and impairments linked to autism in young children. The researchers […]
