Authors: Lotan E, Friedman KP, Davidson T, Shepherd TM Abstract BACKGROUND: The authors reviewed the two most common current uses of brain 18F-labeled fluoro-2-deoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) at a large academic medical center. For epilepsy patients considering surgical management, FDG-PET can help localize epileptogenic lesions, discriminate between multiple or discordant EEG or MRI findings, and predict prognosis for post-surgical seizure control. In elderly patients with cognitive impairment, FDG-PET often demonstrates lobar-specific patterns of hypometabolism that suggest particular underlyi...

Purpose of review To illustrate the frequency and trends of the comorbidity of epilepsy and dementia and the effects of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) on cognitive functions. Recent findings Although the mortality and incidence of epilepsy are decreasing overall, they are increasing in the elderly as a result of population growth and increased life expectancy. Alzheimer's disease and other dementias are among the commonest causes of seizures and epilepsy. Epilepsy can be also complicated by cognitive impairment, suggesting a bidirectional association. Although epilepsy with onset in the elderly can be the manifestation of...

Abstract In an aging society, epilepsy in old age will become a more and more relevant disease. The diagnosis is often difficult because of the frequent occurrence of focal seizures in old age, which are easily overlooked. The diagnosis is often delayed, particularly in older patients who, for example also suffer from dementia. The causes of the epilepsy can be manifold in the aging brain. Another challenge for neurologists is the medicinal treatment of geriatric epilepsy, as many anticonvulsive drugs can be associated with serious side effects and interactions. The evidence for the effectiveness and tolerabi...

Abstract Following the formulation of operational criteria for the diagnosis of psychosis in Parkinson's disease, a neurodegenerative disorder, the past decade has seen increasing interest in such nonmotor psychopathology that appears to be independent of dopaminergic therapy. Similarly, there has been a resurgence of interest in motor aspects of the neurodevelopmental disorder of schizophrenia, including spontaneous parkinsonism that appears to be independent of antipsychotic treatment. This review first addresses the clinical and nosological challenges of these superficially paradoxical insights and then conside...

We read with great interest the article “Progressive, Fatal Neurological Decline in an Adolescent” by Jacobs et al [1] published in Pediatric Neurology in 2017. Lafora disease is a rare autosomal recessive progressive myoclonus epilepsy with onset classically on the second decade of life [2]. It occurs worldwide, but is more frequent in Mediterranean countries [3]. It presents with generalized seizures followed by myoclonus [4]. Cognitive decline develops rapidly and progresses to dementia [4].

Publication date: Available online 21 February 2020Source: Biocybernetics and Biomedical EngineeringAuthor(s): Ashima Khosla, Padmavati Khandnor, Trilok ChandAbstractElectroencephalogram (EEG) measures the neuronal activities in the form of electric currents that are generated due to the synchronized activity by a group of specialized pyramidal cells inside the brain. The study presents a brief comparison of various functional neuroimaging techniques, revealing the excellent neuroimaging capabilities of EEG signals such as high temporal resolution, inexpensiveness, portability and non-invasiveness as compared to the other ...

Abstract Ketogenic diets have been proposed as a non-pharmacological strategy for the management of several chronic conditions. Their efficacy and safety have been evaluated in the field of neurology, oncology and endocrinology for disorders including cancer, dementia, drug-resistant epilepsy, migraines, obesity, polycystic ovary syndrome and type 2 diabetes mellitus. The nutritional requirements of these subjects are expected to differ significantly. Indeed, although all ketogenic diets restrict carbohydrates, each intervention is characterized by a specific daily calorie intake, macronutrient composition and dur...
