N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors mediate excitatory neurotransmission in the mammalian brain. Two glycine-binding NR1 subunits and two glutamate-binding NR2 subunits each form highly Ca²(+)-permeable cation channels which are blocked by extracellular Mg²(+) in a voltage-dependent manner. Either GRIN2B or GRIN2A, encoding the NMDA receptor subunits NR2B(More)
Glutamate transporters are operative at an early developmental stage well before synapse formation, but their functional significance has not been determined. We now report that blockade of glutamate transporters in the immature neocortex generates recurrent NMDA receptor-mediated currents associated with synchronous oscillations of [Ca2+]i in the entire(More)
PURPOSE STXBP1 (MUNC18-1) mutations have been associated with various types of epilepsies, mostly beginning early in life. To refine the phenotype associated with STXBP1 aberrations in early onset epileptic syndromes, we studied this gene in a cohort of patients with early onset epileptic encephalopathy. METHODS STXBP1 was screened in a multicenter cohort(More)
PURPOSE To determine the electrophysiological pattern and propose a clinical relevance of a deficient glutamate transport in the developing brain. METHODS (a) Surface EEG-video monitoring in freely moving pups; (b) intracortical multiple unit activity (MUA) and local field potential recordings in 5- to 7-day-old rats after pharmacological inhibition of(More)
Children with epilepsy are at risk of developing learning disorders. To explore the influence of the epileptic syndrome on reading abilities, we have compared the neuropsychological profile of 12 children with benign idiopathic epilepsy with rolandic spikes, 10 with temporal lobe epilepsy and 12 with idiopathic generalized epilepsy. Children underwent a(More)
BACKGROUND Early onset epileptic encephalopathies (EOEEs) are dramatic heterogeneous conditions in which aetiology, seizures and/or interictal EEG have a negative impact on neurological development. Several genes have been associated with EOEE and a molecular diagnosis workup is challenging since similar phenotypes are associated with mutations in different(More)
We report the case of a young boy presenting with pre-frontal seizures including singing automatisms. There was no visible lesion on MRI, but following localisation using stereoelectroencephalography (SEEG), surgery revealed an underlying dysplastic lesion.
Vigabatrin is an antiepileptic drug that produces intramyelinic edema in several animal models. This study investigates the effect of vigabatrin on the developing human brain. The authors retrospectively blindly review 34 brain magnetic resonance imaging of 22 epileptic infants (age: 9 +/- 1 months) that received vigabatrin, focusing on the presence of(More)
Ictal paresis (IP) is a rare negative motor phenomenon presenting challenging differential diagnostic problems with transient ischemic attacks, post-ictal paralysis, migraine and psychogenic paralysis. Video-EEG undoubtedly represents the essential mean for a proper diagnosis. Periodic lateralised epileptiform discharges (PLEDs) are a distinctive EEG(More)
OBJECTIVE Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is commonly observed in children with epilepsy. However, factors associated with the development of ADHD and which might help to guide its therapeutic management, remain an issue of debate. METHODS We conducted a multicenter prospective observational study that included children, aged 6-16 years,(More)
