Newswise: Epilepsy Study Shows Link Between Brain Activity and Memory

Epilepsy Study Shows Link Between Brain Activity and Memory

Cedars-Sinai

A new study reveals how memory and abnormal brain activity are linked in patients with epilepsy who often report problems with memory. The data show that abnormal electrical pulses from specific brain cells in these patients are associated with a temporary kind of memory disruption called transient cognitive impairment.

Newswise: Investigational Drug for People with Treatment-Resistant Epilepsy

Investigational Drug for People with Treatment-Resistant Epilepsy

Johns Hopkins Medicine

Imagine not being able to drive, shower alone or even work because you are never quite sure when the next seizure will leave you incapacitated. Hope may be on the horizon for epilepsy patients who have had limited success with seizure drugs. In a study, led by a Johns Hopkins lead investigator, of 437 patients across 107 institutions in 16 countries, researchers found that the investigational drug cenobamate reduced seizures 55% on the two highest doses of this medication that were tested over the entire treatment period.
