Multiunit cluster firing patterns of piriform cortex and mediodorsal thalamus in absence epilepsy.

The objective of the study were to investigate patterns of multiunit cluster firing in the piriform cortex (PC) and mediodorsal thalamus (MDT) in a rat model of genetic generalized epilepsy (GGE) with...

Anatomical imaging of the piriform cortex in epilepsy.

The piriform cortex is a distinct brain region that plays a key role in the sense of smell. The piriform cortex is the major part of primary olfactory cortex and has broad connections that extend beyo...

Antiepileptic effects of electrical stimulation of the piriform cortex.

Deep brain stimulation (DBS) may help control seizures in individuals with medically intractable epilepsy who are not candidates for resective surgery. The current review focuses on some preclinical s...

The piriform cortex in epilepsy: What we learn from the kindling model.

Epilepsy is a circuit-level brain disorder characterized by excessive or hypersynchronous epileptic seizures involving a complex epileptogenic network. Cumulative evidence suggests that the piriform c...

The effects of ammonia stimulation on kainate-induced status epilepticus and anterior piriform cortex electrophysiology.

Strong olfactory stimulation (OS) with such substances as toluene or ammonia has been reported to suppress seizures. We aimed to investigate the role of ammonia stimulation on acute kainic acid (KA)-i...

Genetic Study of Familial Epilepsy

OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the chromosomal regions that contain genes that raise the risk of epilepsy in families by performing genetic linkage analysis of idiopathic/cryptogenic epilepsy.

A Pilot Study of Efficacy and Tolerability of Levetiracetam Monotherapy in Subjects With Childhood Absence Epilepsy

Childhood absence epilepsy (CAE) is a form of generalized epilepsy syndrome. Clinically these seizures are manifest with a sudden, brief (3-15 second) loss of awareness followed by a quic...

Longitudinal Early Epilepsy Study

This longitudinal study will focus on the cognitive and brain development of children with absence epilepsy. In addition, the investigators aim to identify prognostic factors for cognitive...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A disorder characterized by the onset of myoclonus in adolescence, a marked increase in the incidence of absence seizures (see EPILEPSY, ABSENCE), and generalized major motor seizures (see EPILEPSY, TONIC-CLONIC). The myoclonic episodes tend to occur shortly after awakening. Seizures tend to be aggravated by sleep deprivation and alcohol consumption. Hereditary and sporadic forms have been identified. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p323)

An area of the olfactory cortex comprising the rostral half of the uncus of the PARAHIPPOCAMPAL GYRUS and the anterior PARAHIPPOCAMPAL GYRUS. It receives major afferents directly from the OLFACTORY BULB.

A childhood seizure disorder characterized by rhythmic electrical brain discharges of generalized onset. Clinical features include a sudden cessation of ongoing activity usually without loss of postural tone. Rhythmic blinking of the eyelids or lip smacking frequently accompanies the SEIZURES. The usual duration is 5-10 seconds, and multiple episodes may occur daily. Juvenile absence epilepsy is characterized by the juvenile onset of absence seizures and an increased incidence of myoclonus and tonic-clonic seizures. (Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, p736)

An anticonvulsant effective in tonic-clonic epilepsy (EPILEPSY, TONIC-CLONIC). It may cause blood dyscrasias.

The rostral part of the amygdala with cortical-like layered structure. It receives major inputs from the OLFACTORY BULB and PIRIFORM CORTEX.
