Chronic illness associated with lower developmental readiness for school entry

Chronic illnesses such as otitis media, respiratory disease, and epilepsy increase the likelihood that children will be developmentally at risk for difficulties at school entry, a study showed. The...

Authors: Ranjan M, Boutet A, Bhatia S, Wilfong A, Hader W, Lee MR, Rezai AR, Adelson PD Abstract Introduction Epilepsy is one of the most common neurological disorders and is often difficult to control with medication. Intractable epilepsy often results in compromised quality of life (QOL), neurologic morbidity and even mortality. In carefully selected cases, resective surgery offers the best potential for cure or seizure control. However, a large proportion of patients are not suitable for resective epilepsy surgery. Neuromodulation techniques are increasingly being used to treat such refractory cases. Recently, the ...

Conclusion: The proposed method suppresses CS artifacts without affecting the background SEEG signal. Significance: The proposed method can be applied for suppressing both low and high frequency CS artifacts and outperforms current methods from the literature.

Conclusion: Slowly evolving seizures are more likely to be accurately imaged with SPECT, and the identified focus may overlap with brain regions where significant t- pological changes occur. Significance: Measures of preictal/early ictal network dynamics may help optimize the SPECT localization, leading to improved surgical and neurostimulation outcomes in refractory epilepsy.

ConclusionsLow-dose VPA can be used to achieve remission in JME. However, identification at follow-up visits of the factors that may affect remission may change the planned effective dose of VPA.

Discussion Sleep disorders are common in all ages particularly with sleep deprivation in our increasingly busy world. Sleep problems are more common in patients with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, epilepsy, headache and visual impairments. Sleep problems can cause cognitive and behavioral impairments including emotional regulation problems, increased seizures or headaches, and impaired attention and have been known to prolong recovery from various acquired brain injuries. Parasomnias are “undesirable events that accompany sleep and typically occur during sleep-wake transitions.” The term sleep terr...

Conclusion While government groups maintain that no studies have been done to compare the health of vaccinated to unvaccinated, the reality is that several comparative studies have been completed by independent researchers in the US and in other countries. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention refuses to conduct such studies, claiming they would be unethical to perform. In reality, these studies could easily be performed, since many educated parents choose to not vaccinate their children. The evidence is overwhelming. Studies completed in New Zealand, Germany, Africa, Great Britain and the United States have come ...
