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 […]
Early detection of the most common form of epilepsy in children is possible through “deep learning,” a new machine learning tool that teaches computers to learn by example, according to a new study that includes researchers from Georgia State University. Benign epilepsy with centrotemporal spikes (BECT), one of the most frequent epilepsies, accounts for […]
More than 2% of children with West syndrome, temporal lobe epilepsy, or Panayiotopoulos syndrome initially were misdiagnosed with gastrointestinal disorders, according to the results of a large single-center retrospective study.

A privately held medical technology company is transforming the way electroencephalography (EEG) is done. Zeto, a California based medical technology company, announced todfay that […]
Stereo EEG provides a deep, detailed map of the brain as physicians evaluate patients for the surgical treatment of epilepsy.
For patients that find their seizures difficult to manage on medications, other treatment options such as diet, devices or surgery may be beneficial. Dr. Amy Crepeau, neurologist at Mayo Clinic in Arizona, discusses the evaluation of patients with epilepsy using brain mapping technology.
Scanning a premature infant’s brain shortly after birth to map the location and volume of lesions, small areas of injury in the brain’s white matter, may help doctors better predict whether the baby will have disabilities later.
