Analysis of epileptic seizures with complex network.

Epilepsy is a disease of abnormal neural activities involving large area of brain networks. Until now the nature of functional brain network associate...

Association of RASgrf1 methylation with epileptic seizures.
DNA methylation, one of the mechanisms of epigenetic regulation, has been suggested to be related with epilepsy. RASgrf1 is a paternally imprinted gene and has a differentially methylated region (DMR) at the promoter that can silence gene expression.

Reliability of the witness descriptions of epileptic seizures and psychogenic non-epileptic attacks: a comparative analysis.
The diagnosis of epilepsy primarily depends on description of the observed seizure. The aim of this study was to determine the reliability of witness' description among groups with different medical education.

Differentiating PNES from epileptic seizures using conversational analysis.
We applied conversation analysis in an unselected continuous series of 70 patients to discriminate patients with psychogenic nonepileptic seizures (PNES) from patients with epilepsy. Two psychologists examined the patients' recorded reports. Patients

MDR-1 and MRP2 Gene Polymorphisms in Mexican Epileptic Pediatric Patients with Complex Partial Seizures.
Although the Pgp efflux transport protein is overexpressed in resected tissue of patients with epilepsy, the presence of polymorphisms in MDR1/ABCB1 and MRP2/ABCC2 in patients with antiepileptic-drugs resistant epilepsy (ADR) is controversial. The ai

Nonketotic hyperglycemia-related epileptic seizures.
Nonketotic hyperglycemia-related seizures (NKH) are rare. We report a case of NKH-related seizures in a patient following a traumatic brain injury.

Cardiorespiratory abnormalities during epileptic seizures.
Sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP) is a leading cause of death in young and otherwise healthy patients with epilepsy, and sudden death is at least 20 times more common in epilepsy patients as compared to patients without epilepsy. A signific

KCC2 downregulation facilitates epileptic seizures.
GABAA receptor-mediated inhibition depends on the maintenance of low level intracellular [Cl-] concentration, which in adult depends on neuron specific K+-Cl- cotransporter-2 (KCC2). Previous studies have shown that KCC2 was downregulated in both epi

Predicting epileptic seizures in advance.
Epilepsy is the second most common neurological disorder, affecting 0.6-0.8% of the world's population. In this neurological disorder, abnormal activity of the brain causes seizures, the nature of which tend to be sudden. Antiepileptic Drugs (AEDs) a

Large-scale modeling of epileptic seizures: scaling properties of two parallel neuronal network simulation algorithms.
Our limited understanding of the relationship between the behavior of individual neurons and large neuronal networks is an important limitation in current epilepsy research and may be one of the main causes of our inadequate ability to treat it. Addr
