A Computer Test to Speed Up Neurology Exams

A Computer Test to Speed Up Neurology Exams

A new computerized exam has been developed that can drastically speed up the amount of time that it takes for a neurologist to identify areas of concern in patients and deliver more accurate diagnoses, and care. The cognition tests can take about 20 minutes up to one hour depending on the number of areas that […]

AUTISM AND EPILEPSY: UV researchers study neurobiological link between ASD and epilepsy

AUTISM AND EPILEPSY: UV researchers study neurobiological link between ASD and epilepsy

Researchers at the University of Veracruz (UV), in the west coast of Mexico, study the neurobiological link between the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and epilepsy, in order to understand the reason why the brain of an autistic child is 20-30 percent more susceptible to seizures that an infant without this condition. To know said relationship, […]

Big data helps discover gephyrin protein’s connection in human history, epilepsy

Big data helps discover gephyrin protein’s connection in human history, epilepsy

Big data: It’s a term we read and hear about often, but is hard to grasp. Computer scientists at Washington University in St. Louis’ School of Engineering & Applied Science tackled some big data about an important protein and discovered its connection in human history as well as clues about its role in complex neurological […]

How Could an International “Data Bank” Improve Epilepsy Care?

How Could an International “Data Bank” Improve Epilepsy Care?

Would a Data Bank Fill Epilepsy Care Gaps? Epilepsy has scores of factors, each leading to different treatment strategies and complicating the development of an evidence-based approach to seizure control. Because so few epilepsy patients have the same causative and complementary factors, even neurologists with hundreds, if not thousands, of patients would lack sufficient comparison […]

BREAKTHROUGH: New Compound Shows Anti-Seizure, Anti-inflammatory effects for TBI Treatment

BREAKTHROUGH: New Compound Shows Anti-Seizure, Anti-inflammatory effects for TBI Treatment

Summary of article: A new compound containing Deuterium called “C-10068” is displaying extremely positive results as a treatment for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). When testing brain trauma response on lab animals (rats), researchers found that doses of C-10068 could reduce post-injury seizures, both convulsant and non-convulsant. At the highest dosages, brain inflammation was also greatly reduced. […]

March 26 is PURPLE DAY!

Epilepsy is the most common serious neurological condition in the world. An estimated 50+ million people across the globe are currently living with seizures. Epilepsy is more than three times as common as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and cerebral palsy. Sadly however, due to the longstanding social stigmas and misconceptions associated with epilepsy, many people do […]
