Study identifies the brain network that controls the spread of epileptic seizures.

In roughly 20 million people with drug-resistant epilepsy, focal seizures originating in dysfunctional brain networks will often evolve and spread to surrounding tissue, disrupting function in otherwise normal brain regions. … Continue Reading Study identifies the brain network that controls the spread of epileptic seizures.

New technique begins to map and untangle neuronal networks in Parkinson’s disease.

In patients with Parkinson’s disease, gait disorders and difficulty with balance are often caused by the degeneration of a specific type of neuron, called cholinergic neurons, in a region of … Continue Reading New technique begins to map and untangle neuronal networks in Parkinson’s disease.
