  1. 16. Gene therapy for epilepsy: resculpturing synaptic transmission with neuropeptides

    University dissertation from Institutionen för kliniska vetenskaper, Lunds universitet

    Author : Andreas Toft Sörensen; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; LTP; synaptic plasticity; synaptic transmission; electrophysiology; Y5 receptor; Y2 receptor; neuropeptide Y NPY ; hippocampus; gene therapy; epilepsy; memory; activity-dependent release; volume transmission;

    Abstract : Intractable seizures and lack of effective antiepileptic drugs (AED) are severe and common conditions affecting many patients with epilepsy. Thus, there is an urgent need to develop new therapies in epilepsy. The search for novel treatments has identified several neuropeptide systems as potential targets for future therapeutic interventions. READ MORE

  2. 17. Rehabilitation for persons with epilepsy : Assessment of a comprehensive rehabilitation program

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Clinical Neuroscience

    Author : Ewa Wadhagen Wedlund; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; epilepsy;

    Abstract : Epilepsy is one of the most common serious neurological disorders with an estimated prevalence of approximately 0.5%. In addition to the obvious medical risk associated with epilepsy, psychosocial consequences may be extensive. These can include problems related to different comorbidities and disabilities as well as cognitive impairment. READ MORE

  3. 18. Speech and language dysfunction in childhood epilepsy and epileptiform EEG activity

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Clinical Neuroscience

    Author : Gunilla Rejnö-Habte Selassie; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; auditory ability; cognition; co-morbidity; epilepsy; epileptiform activity; follow-up; Landau Kleffner syndrome; language disorder; neurodevelopmental dysfunction; speech disorder;

    Abstract : In severe childhood language disorder, concomitant dysfunction in other areas may be present. There are indications that epileptiform EEG activity and epilepsy may influence speech and language development, but this relationship is poorly understood. READ MORE

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

    University dissertation from Clinical Neurophysiology

    Author : Göran Lantz; [1997]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; frequency analysis; ictal; 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. 20. 10-year Outcome of Childhood Epilepsy in Well-functioning Children and Adolescents

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Uppsala universitet
