The medical devices making a difference to patients with epilepsy

The medical devices making a difference to patients with epilepsy

Up to 70% of people living with epilepsy could become seizure-free with appropriate use of anti-seizure treatments. We explore how medical device innovations can help make significant improvements to patients living with this condition. According to the World Health Organization, more than 50 million people worldwide have epilepsy. Treating epilepsy presents several challenges, including the […]

Epilepsy lesion localization method based on brain function network

Epilepsy lesion localization method based on brain function network

Objective: In the past, the localization of seizure onset zone (SOZ) primarily relied on traditional EEG signal analysis methods. However, due to their limited spatial and temporal resolution, accurately pinpointing neural activity was challenging, thereby restricting their clinical applicability. Compared with traditional EEG signals, SEEG signals have superior spatial and temporal resolution, and can more […]

Oregon researcher helps create a new brain-mapping device that could make neurosurgery safer

Oregon researcher helps create a new brain-mapping device that could make neurosurgery safer

A flexible film bristling with tiny sensors could make surgery safer for patients with a brain tumor or severe epilepsy. The experimental film, which looks like Saran wrap, rests on the brain’s surface and detects the electrical activity of nerve cells below. It’s designed to help surgeons remove diseased tissue while preserving important functions like […]
