Mozart's music in children with drug-refractory epileptic encephalopathies: Comparison of two protocols.

In conclusion, the present study seems to confirm that music therapy may be an additional, nonpharmacological, effective treatment for patients with refractory epileptic seizures in childhood. The Mozart's set of different compositions can be better accepted and effective than the K448. PMID: 29182948 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Epileptic spasms started at a mean age of 3.5 months (range = 4 weeks–8 months). In five cases, tonic seizures preceded spasms at a median age of 6 weeks. In one patient who started at 8 months, spasms had a component of terror on awakening, reminding sleep terror. In two patients, electroencephal...

This study provides a possible reason why genes carrying health risks have persisted in human populations. The second found evidence for multiple variants in genes related to ageing that exhibited antagonistic pleiotropic effects. They found higher risk allele frequencies with large effect sizes for late-onset diseases (relative to early-onset diseases) and an excess of variants with antagonistic effects expressed through early and late life diseases. There also exists other recent tangible evidence of antagonistic pleiotropy in specific human genes. The SPATA31 gene has been found under strong positive genomic sele...
