SREDA: A Rare but Confusing Benign EEG Variant

Conclusions: This study indicates that SREDA is difficult to associate with any specific condition. The pathophysiology of SREDA can not be explained by a single mechanism. Even if it is mostly observed in older adults, it is also observed in young adults in this study. It is important to differentiate SREDA from ictal discharge to prevent misdiagnosis of epilepsy especially in nonepileptic paroxysmal events.

Background: Based on previous studies, vitamin D deficiency could lead to nerve stimulation. The purpose of the present study was to determine frequency and duration of seizures in children with idiopathic epilepsy in two groups; normal level of vitamin D versus decreased level of vitamin D. Methods: This pilot, comparative study was carried out in Zanjan University of Medical Sciences on total 40 children aging between 2 to 12 years old (23 male and 17 female) with the diagnosis of idiopathic epilepsy. All patients were receiving anti-epileptic drugs. The initial questionnaire was completed by each parent. Total 40 epilep...

Alzheimer ’s disease (AD; MIM#104300) is the most common form of neurodegenerative disorder occurring predominantly in later life with complex etiology and a strong genetic component [1]. AD is a devastating progressive disease characterized by memory loss, confusion, thinking difficulty and changes in beha vior, personality and language. The definitive diagnosis of AD is only possible by post-mortem histopathology examination of the intraneuronal presence of neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs), composed of highly phosphorylated forms of the microtubule-associated protein tau, and plaques constituted by the amyloid-β (Aβ) peptide.

A procedure that that is already being used for the treatment of some brain diseases is receiving increased attention as a possible treatment for Alzheimer’s disease. Called deep brain stimulation (DBS), an implanted neurostimulator delivers electrical signals that help regulate abnormal signals in the brain caused by the disease. n the U.S., DBS is currently only approved for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease and essential tremor. But the potential for its use is expanding, with more researchers looking into the procedure for epilepsy, depression, bipolar disorder, and now, Alzheimer’s disease. R...

In one important way, we are capable of traveling back in time. Through memory, we can return to childhood, go back to the moment we first fell in love or recall our first professional triumph. Vivid memories that call to mind an experience in deep sensory detail can seem to transport us back to another time and place. When we recall the particular bit of information we're looking for, we also recall many other surrounding details -- how we felt, what we were wearing, what came before and afterwards. New research from neuroscientists at Vanderbilt University sheds light on how the brain performs this remarkable functio...
