Abstract There has recently been a marked rise in the medicinal use of cannabis for epilepsy and multiple other conditions. While seizures have been reported in association with synthetic cannabinoids, the clinical features and prognosis have not been studied. Thirty patients with a history of seizures occurring within 24 h of synthetic cannabinoid use were identified from a first seizure clinic database in Perth, Western Australia between 2011 and 2016. Eight had a prior history of seizures, th...

Abstract Objective The objective of the study was to investigate the predictive seizure lateralization ability of the Neuropsychological Screening Battery for Hispanics (NeSBHIS) in an optimally, demographically matched cohort of primarily immigrant Spanish-speaking people with epilepsy (PWE) living in the US. Linguistically and culturally appropriate neuropsychological measures for Spanish-speaking people are increasingly needed in the US, especially as this diverse, international population gr...

Abstract Background Early accounts of forced thought were reported at the onset of a focal seizure, and characterized as vague, repetitive, and involuntary intellectual auras distinct from perceptual or psychic hallucinations or illusions. Here, we examine the neural underpinnings involved in conceptual thought by presenting a series of 3 patients with epilepsy reporting intrusive thoughts during electrical stimulation of the left lateral prefrontal cortex (PFC) during invasive surgical evaluati...
Abstract Objective The study aimed to evaluate the attitudes of seizure-free patients toward the antiepileptic drug (AED) withdrawal and to highlight the factors that affect their perspectives. Methods The study participants were recruited among the individuals attending the epilepsy outpatient clinic of a university hospital in Skopje between January 2018 and April 2019. Patients with epilepsy who had been seizure-free for at least 2 years on stable monotherapy were included. Results Among the ...
Abstract Objective The objective of the study was to identify the relationship between subcortical gray matter (GM) volumes and juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME). Methods We analyzed the brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans that were performed during the time of the diagnosis of epilepsy by using voxel-based morphometry (VBM) method. The volumetric three-dimensional sequence was used for structural investigation. The volumes of the thalamus, caudate nucleus, pallidum, and putamen were me...

Abstract Background Physiotherapists play a key role in the rehabilitation of children with epileptic seizures. Regular physical exercise generates psychological and physiological benefits for people with epilepsy. Design This study was a cross-sectional design. Purpose The purpose of this study was to evaluate the knowledge and current practices of physiotherapists on the physical activity and exercise in the rehabilitation of children with epileptic seizures in Nigeria. Methods Physiotherapist...

Abstract Although 70% of people with epilepsy (PWE) achieve seizure freedom following an appropriate antiepileptic drug (AED) regime, evidence suggests that adherence to AEDs by PWE is suboptimal. Nonadherence to AEDs is associated with increased morbidity, mortality, emergency department visits, and hospitalizations, with reduced adherence also correlating to a lower quality of life, decreased productivity, and loss of employment. Furthermore, research indicates that medication errors which are...
Abstract Introduction Although the knowledge about epilepsy is rapidly increasing, the rate of stigmatization still remains high among patients. Since stigmatization is a condition that reduces the quality of life of patients and adversely affects the treatment response, it is very important to reveal the contributing factors. In this study, it was aimed to investigate which of the current social support resources of the patients are related to stigmatization, whether the support received from f...

Abstract Objective This post hoc analysis of six randomized, double-blind, Phase II and III studies evaluated efficacy and safety of adjunctive perampanel (2–12 mg/day) in adolescent patients (aged ≥ 12 to ≤ 17 years) with uncontrolled partial-onset seizures, with or without secondarily generalized (SG) seizures, or primary generalized tonic–clonic (PGTC) seizures. Methods Adolescent patients from Studies 304 ( NCT00699972 ), 305 ( NCT00699582 ), 306 ( NCT00700310 ), 335 ( NCT01618695 ), 235 ( N...
