Psychological features and quality of life in 50 adult patients with epilepsy and their caregivers from the Lecco epilepsy center, Italy.

Epilepsy is one of the most common neurological disorders. To the best of our knowledge, in Italy, the relationship between patients' and caregivers' psychological state has rarely been analyzed. Thus, we sought to evaluate both the psychological state of patients with epilepsy and that of their caregivers and the interrelationship between them. We also assessed the existing relation between psychological features and some clinical and demographic information, such as number of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs), e...

Interleukin-1β Plays a Pivotal Role via the PI3K/Akt/mTOR Signaling Pathway in the Chronicity of Mesial Temporal Lobe Epilepsy.

Mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE) is the most common type of refractory epilepsy. It is often associated with hippocampal sclerosis, which is histopathologically characterized by selective neuron loss, mossy fiber sprouting, and synapse reconstruction, and is the primary cause of refractory epilepsy. Its mechanism has not been fully elucidated. Substantial evidence now supports that inflammatory pathways are activated in epilepsy foci. We have confirmed that the interleukin-1β (IL-1β) level is involved...

Attitudes toward epilepsy and perceptions of epilepsy-related stigma in Korean evangelical Christians.

The scriptural description of Jesus driving out an evil spirit from a boy with epilepsy supported the idea of the spiritual nature of epilepsy for centuries. Korea has a shorter history of Christianity than the Western world. We determined whether there are differences in attitudes toward epilepsy and perception of epilepsy-related stigma between people with and without belief in evangelical Christianity in Korea.

We analyzed 2008-2010, 5% random sample of Medicare beneficiaries augmented with data from all beneficiaries who identified as a minority with claims related to seizures (780.3x) or epilepsy (345.xx). Of 36,912 identified epilepsy cases, 12.6% had ≥1 emergency room (ER) visit for seizure(s). For those who presented to ER, among those takin...

Pharmacoresistance with newer anti-epileptic drugs in mesial temporal lobe epilepsy with hippocampal sclerosis.

This study aims to evaluate the overall prognosis, prognostic factors, and efficacy of treatment in patients with mesial temporal lobe epilepsy with hippocampal sclerosis (MTLE-HS) who have access to third generation anti-epileptic drugs but not to epilepsy surgery. Eighty-five MTLE-HS patients were retrospectively placed into a seizure-free (seizure-free for >1year) or drug-resistant group, and the two groups were compared on the basis of age, sex, age at onset of seizures, duration of epilepsy, side of le...

Epilepsy may cause increased pain sensitivity: Evidence from absence epileptic WAG/Rij rats.

The comorbidity of epilepsy and pain disorders as well as effectiveness of certain therapeutic approaches in both conditions attracted attention to epilepsy-pain interactions. This lead to the discovery of significantly shared pathophysiological mechanisms although many aspects remain largely unknown. To test the hypothesis that epilepsy may be associated with altered pain sensitivity, we analyzed interictal pain sensitivity using epilepsy prone WAG/Rij rats, a genetic model exhibiting age-related-onset abs...

Advances in epilepsy gene discovery and implications for epilepsy diagnosis and treatment.

Epilepsy genetics is shifting from the academic pursuit of gene discovery to a clinical discipline based on molecular diagnosis and stratified medicine. We consider the latest developments in epilepsy genetics and review how gene discovery in epilepsy is influencing the clinical classification of epilepsy and informing new therapeutic approaches and drug discovery.

A Study on Optimal Strategy in Relative Radiometric Calibration for Optical Sensors.

Based on the analysis of three main factors involved in the relative radiometric calibration for optical sensors, namely: the number of radiance level; the number of measurements at each level; and the radiance level grouping method, an optimal strategy is presented in this paper for relative radiometric calibration. First, the maximization to the possible extent of either the number of the radiance level or the number of measurements at each level can improve the precision of the calibration results, where...

Recording EEG in Freely Moving Neonatal Rats Using a Novel Method.

EEG is a useful method to detect electrical activity in the brain. Moreover, it is a widely used diagnostic tool for various neurological conditions, such as epilepsy and neurodegenerative disorders. However, it is technically difficult to obtain EEG recordings in neonates as it requires specialized handling and great care. Here, we present a novel method to record EEG in neonatal rat pups (P8-P15). We designed a simple and reliable electrode using computer pin loci; it can be easily implanted into the skul...

Becoming comfortable with "my" epilepsy: Strategies that patients use in the journey from diagnosis to acceptance and disclosure.

Proponents of resilience theory have highlighted the importance of understanding the processes of resilience. The objective of the study was to explore how people with epilepsy reach a stage of being comfortable with their epilepsy. Identifying the processes used is important to developing effective self-management for people who are newly diagnosed with epilepsy.

Knowledge, attitudes, and practices among mothers of children with epilepsy: A study in a teaching hospital.

Knowledge about epilepsy and attitudes towards patients with epilepsy can affect measures taken to manage epilepsy and seizures. Support and understanding of mothers is invaluable in enabling children with epilepsy to develop normal life skills in living with epilepsy. In order to identify the educational needs of mothers of children with epilepsy, their knowledge, attitudes, and practices should be assessed. Therefore, we interviewed a group of mothers of children with epilepsy who were referred to a pedia...

Social media in epilepsy: A quantitative and qualitative analysis.

While the social burden of epilepsy has been extensively studied, an evaluation of social media related to epilepsy may provide novel insight into disease perception, patient needs and access to treatments. The objective of this study is to assess patterns in social media and online communication usage related to epilepsy and its associated topics.

Distress Disclosure and Psychological Functioning Among Taiwanese Nationals and European Americans: The Moderating Roles of Mindfulness and Nationality.

Research using Western samples shows that talking about unpleasant emotions-distress disclosure-is associated with fewer psychological symptoms and higher well-being. These benefits of distress disclosure may or may not be observed in East Asia where emotional control is valued. Instead, mindfulness may be more relevant to emotion regulation in East Asia (e.g., Taiwan). In the present study, cultural context (Taiwanese nationals vs. European Americans) and mindfulness were examined as moderators of the rela...

Sleep problems in pediatric epilepsy and ADHD: The impact of comorbidity.

Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a frequent comorbidity in pediatric epilepsy.
