  1. 1. Effects of Vagus Nerve Stimulation and Ketogenic Diet on Quality of Life and Changes in EEG and Sleep

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Tove Hallböök; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neuropsykologi; vagus nerve stimulation; Neurologi; neurophysiology; neuropsychology; Neurology; Medicin människa och djur ; Medicine human and vertebrates ; behaviour; attention; ketogenic diet; delta power; slow wave sleep; REM; mood; sleep; quality of life; EEG; seizure frequency; spike detection; children; neurofysiologi; Pediatri; epilepsy; Pediatrics;

    Abstract : When anti-epileptic drugs fail, and epilepsy surgery is found unfeasible or ineffective, there remains a group of at least 25% of children with epilepsy in whom seizure control cannot be achieved. Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) is an adjunctive treatment for medically refractory epilepsy. READ MORE

  2. 2. Living with epilepsy : young people with uncomplicated epilepsy and adults with newly debuted epilepsy

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Lena Räty; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; adolescence; antiepileptic drug; attitude; epilepsy; health; self-concept; self-esteem; seizure type; seizure control; sense of coherence; quality of life; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to illuminate experiences of living with uncomplicated epilepsy, i.e. epilepsy without any associated neurological impainnents. The focus was on young people, aged 13- 22 (II, III, IV), and adults, aged 18-65 (I), with newly debuted epilepsy, i. READ MORE

  3. 3. Role of Neuropeptides and Neurotrophic Factors in Seizure Modulation

    University dissertation from Avtandil Nanobashvili, Section of Restorative Neurology, WNC, BMC A11, 221 84 Lund

    Author : Avtandil Nanobashvili; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neurophysiology; neuropsychology; brain slice; entorhinal cortex; hippocampus; galanin; glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor; neuropeptide Y; epilepsy; kindling; Neurology; neurofysiologi; neuropsykologi; Neurologi;

    Abstract : The presented thesis explores role of glial cell line derived neurotrophic factor family receptor a2 (GFRa2), as well as neuropeptide Y (NPY) and galanin and their receptors in modulation of seizure activity. We demonstrate that mice lacking the GFRa2 gene (GFRa2-/-) exhibit suppressed seizure generalization in traditional and rapid kindling models. READ MORE

  4. 4. Source localisation of epileptiform activity in epilepsy of temporal lobe origin

    University dissertation from Clinical Neurophysiology

    Author : Göran Lantz; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1997]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ictal; frequency analysis; singe photon emission computed tomography; volume conduction; extracranial; intracranial; LORETA; dipole; source localisation; epilepsy; mesolimbic; Fast Fourier Transform; Neurology; neuropsychology; neurophysiology; Neurologi; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi;

    Abstract : In patients with drug resistant partial epilepsy, who are under consideration for epilepsy surgery, interictal and ictal EEG recorded with extracranial electrodes plays an important role in the localisation of the seizure onset area. During the past years, methods have been developed, which can be used to estimate the location of the source of epileptiform activity in the brain from extracranial EEG data. READ MORE

  5. 5. ACT Treatment of Epilepsy Time for a behavioral model?

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Tobias Lundgren; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES Social sciences Psychology; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Socialvetenskap Psykologi;

    Abstract : The present dissertation contributes to the understanding of behavioral treatment of epilepsy and supports the integration of medical and behavioral science to develop a treatment model to help those who suffer from drug refractory epilepsy. There is a lack of well-designed randomized controlled trials evaluating behavioral therapy for epilepsy. READ MORE
