Publication date: Available online 20 October 2019Source: International Journal of PsychophysiologyAuthor(s): Olga Boukrina, Ekaterina Dobryakova, Veronica Schneider, John DeLuca, Nancy ChiaravallotiAbstractThe modified Story Memory Technique (mSMT) is a memory rehabilitation program that combines training in visualization and context formation to improve learning and memory. Previous studies have shown improvement in learning and memory in individuals with multiple sclerosis (MS) after undergoing the mSMT, including changes in brain activity related to working memory and word encoding. The current study examined changes i...

We report the psychiatric, behavioral, and cognitive profiles over the course of disease from a large, prospectively-enrolled, longitudinal cohort of children with CECTS. We further characterize the detailed seizure course and test the relationship between several proposed risk factors and neuropsychiatric and seizure outcomes in these children.MethodsPatients diagnosed with CECTS were enrolled as part of a community-based study and followed from diagnosis through disease resolution (16.0 ± 3.1 years, N = 60). Twenty sibling controls were also recruited. We report the natural history of premorbid neuropsyc...

This study was conducted with 210 hospital staff working at Van Regional Educational and Training Hospital in Van, Turkey. Data regarding the demographics and familiarity with epilepsy were obtained. Epilepsy knowledge scale and epilepsy attitude scale were used to evaluate the level of knowledge and attitudes regarding epilepsy, respectively.ResultsThe mean score of epilepsy knowledge scale was 11.3 ± 3.8 and the mean score of epilepsy attitude scale was 58.2 ± 6.3. The level of knowledge was positively associated with being familiar with epilepsy. Positive attitudes regarding epilepsy correlated wit...

ConclusionThis study suggests a lower search interest over time in epilepsy surgery, and various associated terms, with increased interest in vagus nerve stimulation and laser ablation procedures over time. There is no clear indication from these data regarding the apparent shift from mesial temporal cases to an increase in extratemporal case workload.

Conclusion: This novel technology discriminates and quantifies subtle differences in behavior and neurological impairments in subjects afflicted with neurological injury/disease. KINARM assessments can be incorporated into multi-center trials (e.g., monitoring stroke motor recovery: NCT02928393). Further studies will determine if KINARM Labs can demonstrate a clinical effect with fewer subjects over a shorter trial period. Disclosures/funding: Dr. Stephen Scott is the inventor of KINARM and CSO of BKIN Technologies.   Multiplexed mass spectrometry assay identifies neurodegeneration biomarkers in CSF Presenter: Chelsky...
