Epilepsy is a paroxysmal neurological disorder characterized by recurrent and unprovoked seizures affecting approximately 50 million people worldwide. Cognitive dysfunction induced by seizures is a severe comorbidity of epilepsy and epilepsy syndromes and reduces patients’ quality of life. Seizures, along with accompanying histopathological and pathophysiological changes, are associated with cognitive comorbidities. Advances in imaging technology and computing allow anatomical and topological…

Disrupted topological organization of structural brain networks in childhood absence epilepsy

The current results demonstrate significant alterations of structural networks in CAE patients, and the impairments tend to grow worse over time, which may provide a new way to understand the pathophysiological mechanism of CAE.

Artificial Intelligence and Computational Approaches for Epilepsy

Computational studies making this feasible are rapidly progressing in particular and have been widely applied in epilepsy and would suggest a novel paradigm for precision medicine.

The subsets of EEG electrodes F7, F8, FC5, FC6, T7, T8 which are placed over the temporal region of the brain which is mainly affected during seizures is considered and when the same methodology is applied on it, results in Accuracy of 97 %, Precision of 95.5 %, Sensitivity of 99 %, and Specificity of 94% with AUC 0.967.

Levetiracetam Reduced the Basal Excitability of the Dentate Gyrus without Restoring Impaired Synaptic Plasticity in Rats with Temporal Lobe Epilepsy

This study comprehensively identified the alterations in the excitability and the short-term and long-term synaptic plasticity of the dentate gyrus of the hippocampus in a lithium–pilocarpine rat model of TLE as well as their possible restoration by LEV (1 week; 300 mg/kg/day).

Distinct Topographical Patterns of Spike-Wave Discharge in Transgenic and Pharmacologically Induced Absence Seizure Models

This study aims to use a high density EEG in pathophysiologically different AS models to compare the spatiotemporal patterns of SWDs and indicates that different cortical networks are involved in the generation of SWD across the two models.

Icariin ameliorates the cognitive function in an epilepsy neonatal rat model by blocking the GluR2/ERK I/II pathway.

It is suggested that icariin protects against neuronal injury and improves cognitive function in hypoxia-induced neonatal epilepsy rats by modulating the GluR2/ERK I/II pathway.

Clinical Classifications of Children With Psychogenic Non-epileptic Seizure

It was showed that motor PNES are the most frequent seizure type in children with psychogenic non-epileptic seizures in China and family issues were a risk factor for PNES.

Vitexin Possesses Anticonvulsant and Anxiolytic-Like Effects in Murine Animal Models

Results from a series of classical murine animal models of chemically induced-seizures and of anxiety-related tests pointed that vitexin did not cause sedation or locomotor impairment on animals, and may reinforce the hypothesis by which this compound acts mainly by the modulation of GABAergic neurotransmission and/or related pathways.

White matter network abnormalities are associated with cognitive decline in chronic epilepsy.

Impaired white matter connectivity, associated with cognitive comorbidity in patients with chronic epilepsy, is revealed and an important role for the network topology rather than volumetric changes, in epilepsy with cognitive decline is suggested.

Neurodevelopmental alterations of large‐scale structural networks in children with new‐onset epilepsy

The hypothesis that epilepsy during early‐life is associated with abnormalities in brain network organization and cognition is tested and the neurodevelopmental impact of new onset childhood epilepsies alters large‐scale brain networks, resulting in greater vulnerability to network failure and cognitive impairment.
