Automated Detection of Focal Epileptic Seizures in a Sentinel Area of the Human Brain

University of Alabama at Birmingham

Researchers have identified a sentinel area of the brain that gives an early warning before clinical seizure manifestations of focal epilepsy, and they can automatically detect that early warning. This offers the possibility of squelching the seizure — before the patient feels any symptoms.

Magnetic Gene in Fish May Someday Help Those with Epilepsy, Parkinson’s

Michigan State University

An aquarium fish that senses the Earth’s magnetic field as it swims could help unlock how diseases such as Parkinson’s and other neurological disorders function. Michigan State University scientists are the first to discover a navigational gene in glass catfish called the electromagnetic-perceptive gene, or EPG, that responds to certain magnetic waves. They’ve already developed a way to use it to control movement in mice.

Traumatic Brain Injury: Discovery of Two Molecules Could Lead to New Drug Treatments

Rutgers University-New Brunswick

After 10 years of research, a Rutgers-led team of scientists has identified two molecules that protect nerve cells after a traumatic brain injury and could lead to new drug treatments. The molecules promote full recovery after traumatic brain injury (TBI) in mice, according to the study published online in Neurobiology of Disease.

Implantable Device Provides New Treatment Option for Epilepsy Patients

Houston Methodist

Richard Pollitt was at the end of his rope after years of suffering regular seizures, with some lasting five minutes and preventing him from working and enjoying his favorite pastimes. Desperate for relief after medications did not work, Pollitt had a small battery-powered device implanted in his skull to control seizures. Now he rarely has them.
