Latest Temporal lobe epilepsy Stories
Epilepsy is a very prevalent neurological disorder. Approximately one-third of patients are resistant to currently available therapies. A team of researchers under the guidance of the Institute of Cellular Neurosciences at the University of Bonn has discovered a new cause to explain the development of temporal lobe epilepsy: At an early stage, astrocytes are uncoupled from each other.
A newly discovered biomarker – visible in brain scans for hours after febrile seizures – predicts which individuals will subsequently develop epilepsy.

Scientists at Stanford University School of Medicine found a form of epilepsy in sea lions that is similar to one found in humans. California sea lions exposed to a toxin in algae develop a form of epilepsy...
The new program will include brain ‘pacemakers’, specialized women’s care, and in-patient monitoring. Hopewell, NJ (PRWEB) January 29, 2014 The
The majority of epilepsy patients who have brain surgery to treat their disorder are satisfied with the results in reducing epilepsy-related seizures and improving their psychological and social well-being.
Patients with the most common form of focal epilepsy have widespread, abnormal connections in their brains that could provide clues toward diagnosis and treatment.
A recently published study by researchers from Spectrum Health and Henry Ford Hospital suggests that surgery may be an effective treatment for epilepsy in older patients, a finding that runs counter to conventional treatment methods.
People with epilepsy could be helped by new research into the way a key molecule controls brain activity during a seizure.
Scientists at Bonn University Hospital and at the Max Planck Institute for neurological research in Cologne have developed a method with which the chances of success of a surgical procedure for temporal lobe epilepsy can be accurately predicted.
