Electronic device used to detect, treat epileptic seizures in mice

Researchers are hoping an electronic device used to detect, stop and prevent epileptic seizures in mice can be used to treat other neurological disorders, according to a study published in Science Advances. In the study led by a U.K. research team, scientists looked at the benefits of “direct in situ electrophoretic drug delivery to treat […]

FUTURE – Brain implant could stop epilepsy seizures

FUTURE – Brain implant could stop epilepsy seizures

For many people who suffer from neurological disorders, such as epilepsy, there are no viable treatment options. In our latest research, we developed an implantable device that may one day offer relief. We show that the implant can treat problems in the brain, such as epileptic seizures, by delivering brain chemicals – known as neurotransmitters […]

Moving Toward Enhanced Regenerative Medicine To Cure Epilepsy

At the border between regenerative medicine and neural engineering lies enhanced regenerative medicine. Using brain tissue modulated by electronic components, EU research has tackled the most common form of epilepsy. Photo© Gabriella Panuccio Temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) is the most common form of epilepsy and yet, the most unresponsive to treatment. Patients have a typical […]
