Parents Describe Arduous Journey to Pediatric Epileptic Surgery When Their Child’s Disease Becomes Resistant to Anti-Seizure Meds

Now, parents share their arduous and “circuitous” journey to get referrals for pediatric epilepsy surgery once their child’s disease stops responding to anti-seizure medications. The UCLA study sheds light on the difficulties parents face obtaining specialty and sub-specialty care for their children during an already stressful time.

Research Shows Brain Differences in Children with Dyslexia and Dysgraphia

The University of Washington study is among the first to identify structural brain differences between children with the two learning disorders and between those children and typical language learners. Researchers say the findings prove that using a single category of learning disability to qualify for special education services is not scientifically supported.

A Glitch in the Recycling

In studying the molecular biology of brain development, a team of researchers led by Ludwig Stockholm director Thomas Perlmann has discovered how disruption of a developmental mechanism alters the very nerve cells that are most affected in Parkinson’s disease. The results of their study, which took nearly four years to complete and involved the targeted manipulation of mouse genes to generate a model of the disease, are published in the current issue of the journal Nature Neuroscience.

Hate to Diet? It’s How We’re Wired

Janelia Research Campus scientists have found that a set of neurons is responsible for the unpleasant feelings associated with hunger. The neurons do not drive an animal to eat, but rather teach an animal to respond to sensory cues that signal the presence of food.

Survey Finds That Most Women Don't Know Female-Specific Signs, Symptoms Of Stroke

A national survey released today by The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center shows that most women don’t know the risks or symptoms females face when it comes to having a stroke. The survey of 1,000 women was released in time for Stroke Awareness Month in May.
