  1. 1. EPILEPSY AND CHILDHOOD AUTISM - with special reference to neuropsychiatric aspects on surgical interventions for medically intractable epilepsy

    Author : Susanna Danielsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; epilepsy; autism; epilepsy surgery; psychopathology; VNS; treatment outcome; children; cognition;

    Abstract : Epilepsy is much more common in individuals with autism than in the general population. The extent to which epilepsy influences the outcome of autism is poorly understood. Many children with medically intractable epilepsy have neurodevelopmental disorders, including autism. READ MORE

  2. 2. Histopathological and neuroimaging studies in partial epilepsy with emphasis on malformations of cortical development

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Sofia Eriksson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; epilepsy; epilepsy surgery; multiple pathology; malformations of cortical development; microdysgenesis; morphometry; diffusion tensor imaging;

    Abstract : The aim of the first part of the present study was to describe the whole Göteborg epilepsy surgery series between 1987 and 1995 with respect to surgical procedures, histopathological findings and clinical correlates. We found a high proportion of malformations of cortical development (MCD) and patients with MCD were studied in further detail in the following studies. READ MORE

  3. 3. Diffusion Tensor Imaging and Tractography in Epilepsy Surgery Candidates

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Daniel Nilsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; epilepsy; epilepsy surgery; temporal lobe resection; optic radiation; diffusion tensor imaging; tractography;

    Abstract : In selected patients with medically refractory epilepsy, surgical treatment can render the patients seizure free or significantly reduce seizure frequency. Temporal lobe resection (TLR) for temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) is the most commonly performed epilepsy surgery procedure. READ MORE

  4. 4. Gene therapy in epilepsy: neuropeptides and neurotrophic factors

    University dissertation from Section of Restorative Neurology, Division of Neurology, Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University, Lund, Sweden

    Author : Irene Kanter Schlifke; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurologi; neurophysiology; neuropsychology; Neurology; piriform cortex; hippocampus; neuropsykologi; encapsulated cells; viral vectors; GDNF; galanin; epilepsy; gene therapy; neurofysiologi;

    Abstract : Temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) is the most common form of epilepsy among adult patients, and the most problematic one as seizures cannot be controlled by currently available drugs in 30 % of patients. Gene therapy based on overexpression of endogenous anti-epileptic agents such as the neuropeptide galanin and the glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) represents a promising new approach for treatment of TLE.

  5. 5. Brain Inflammation and Adult Hippocampal Neurogenesis in Epilepsy

    University dissertation from Neurology, Lund

    Author : Deepti Chugh; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Epilepsy; Inflammation; Neurogenesis; Hippocampus; Microglia; Adhesion molecules; Scaffolding proteins;

    Abstract : Epilepsy is a severe chronic neurological disorder characterized by recurrent spontaneous seizures. Excitatory/inhibitory (E/I) imbalance, neuronal loss, brain inflammation, and altered adult neurogenesis are some of the characteristic hallmarks of epilepsy. READ MORE
