Using laser light to study how epilepsy arises in the healthy brain

Scientists at McGill University have developed a new method to study how seizures arise in the healthy brain. Using laser light guided through ultra-thin optic fibers in the brain of rodents, the researchers "turned on" light-sensitive ...

Motion recognition tech assists epilepsy diagnosis

Motion recognition technology is being used to help neurologists in the study of patients' behaviour during seizures, to provide clues on the sub-type of epilepsy the patient has and identify unusual seizure movements that ...

Our brains may ripple before remembering

A sound, a smell, a word can all flood our minds with memories of past experiences. In a study of epilepsy patients, researchers at the National Institutes of Health found that split seconds before we recall these events ...
