Contributions of anterior cingulate cortex to behaviour.
TLDR
The cingulate epilepsy syndrome provides important support of experimental animal and human functional imaging studies for the role of anterior cingulates cortex in movement, affect and social behaviours. Expand
Cannabidiol: Pharmacology and potential therapeutic role in epilepsy and other neuropsychiatric disorders
TLDR
CBD bears investigation in epilepsy and other neuropsychiatric disorders, including anxiety, schizophrenia, addiction, and neonatal hypoxic‐ischemic encephalopathy, however, data from well‐powered double‐blind randomized, controlled studies on the efficacy of pure CBD for any disorder is lacking. Expand
A Brief Questionnaire to Screen for Quality of Life in Epilepsy The QOLIE‐10
TLDR
A brief questionnaire to screen aspects of health‐related quality of life for persons with epilepsy is evaluated. Expand
Development of the Quality of Life in Epilepsy Inventory for Adolescents: The QOLIE‐AD‐48
TLDR
The development of an instrument to assess health‐related quality of life (HRQOL) in adolescents with epilepsy is reported and it is shown that it can improve the quality of lives of teenagers with epilepsy. Expand
Development and Cross‐Cultural Translations of a 31‐Item Quality of Life in Epilepsy Inventory
TLDR
The development of a questionnaire to assess health‐related quality of‐life in people with epilepsy and the process of cross‐cultural translations of the questionnaire are reported. Expand
The Human K-Complex Represents an Isolated Cortical Down-State
TLDR
It is shown that KCs are generated in widespread cortical areas by outward dendritic currents in the middle and upper cortical layers, accompanied by decreased broadband EEG power and decreased neuronal firing, which demonstrate a steep decline in network activity. Expand
Cannabidiol in patients with treatment-resistant epilepsy: an open-label interventional trial
TLDR
The findings suggest that cannabidiol might reduce seizure frequency and might have an adequate safety profile in children and young adults with highly treatment-resistant epilepsy. Expand
Development of the Quality of Life in Epilepsy Inventory
TLDR
Reliability and validity of an instrument to measure health‐related quality of life (HRQOL) in epilepsy showed that the epilepsy‐targeted factor and three of its four component scales were more sensitive to categorization of patients by severity of seizure frequency and type than scales tapping physical health, mental health, or cognitive function. Expand
Sudden unexpected death in epilepsy: epidemiology, mechanisms, and prevention
TLDR
Because generalised tonic-clonic seizures precede most cases of SUDEP, patients must be better educated about prevention and the value of nocturnal monitoring to detect seizures and postictal stimulation is unproven but warrants further study. Expand
Neuroinflammation and psychiatric illness
TLDR
The link between autoimmunity and neuropsychiatric disorders, and the human and experimental evidence supporting the pathogenic role of neuroinflammation in selected classical psychiatric disorders are reviewed. Expand
