The purpose of the study is to use a new method of high-density electroencephalogram (HD-EEG) recording to map brain areas important for movement, sensation, language, emotion, and cognition.
This study will measure brain waves using high-density EEG. Participants will be asked wear a cap with electrodes attached to it. During the recording, participants may be asked to rest, sleep, or complete a task. The tasks involve viewing pictures, answering questions, speaking, or moving an arm or leg. Recordings generally last between 60-120 minutes.

The IPOD-B2 Study aims to understand the pathogenesis of postoperative delirium in patients undergoing major surgery. The investigators will identify then correlate soluble biomarkers in b...
This study evaluates to what extend electrical source imaging (ESI) provides nonredundant information in the evaluation of epilepsy surgery candidates. Epilepsy surgery normally requires a...
What are the effects of the currently used AEDs on bone mineralization in children and adolescents between the ages of 8 to 18? This is a pilot observational study using DEXA scans to meas...
The purpose of the study is to develop an emergency electroencephalogram (EEG) device, StatNet, that can be placed quickly by minimally-trained personnel and interpreted remotely for rapid...
The prevalence of comorbid depression in patients with epilepsy is as high as 30-50%. The depressive symptoms severely affect seizure severity and quality of life in patients with epilepsy...
High epilepsy prevalence and incidence were observed in onchocerciasis-endemic villages in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). We investigated the clinical characteristics of onchocerciasis-associ...
Misdiagnosis of epilepsy is common. Video electroencephalogram provides a definitive diagnosis but is impractical for many patients referred for evaluation of epilepsy.
The objective of this study was to investigate several clinical electroencephalogram (EEG) findings possibly predicting the early response to antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) and the late outcome in childre...
Preterm infants are at risk for altered brain maturation resulting in neurodevelopmental impairments. Topographical analysis of high-density electroencephalogram during sleep matches underlying brain ...
The objective of the study was to compare the performance of intravenous (IV) lorazepam (IVL) and intranasal midazolam (INM) for seizure termination and prevention of seizure clusters in adults admitt...
Abnormalities in the serum levels of LIPIDS, including overproduction or deficiency. Abnormal serum lipid profiles may include high total CHOLESTEROL, high TRIGLYCERIDES, low HIGH DENSITY LIPOPROTEIN CHOLESTEROL, and elevated LOW DENSITY LIPOPROTEIN CHOLESTEROL.
Conditions with abnormally low levels of LIPOPROTEINS in the blood. This may involve any of the lipoprotein subclasses, including ALPHA-LIPOPROTEINS (high-density lipoproteins); BETA-LIPOPROTEINS (low-density lipoproteins); and PREBETA-LIPOPROTEINS (very-low-density lipoproteins).
A 6.6-kDa protein component of VERY-LOW-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS; INTERMEDIATE-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS; and HIGH-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS. Apo C-I displaces APO E from lipoproteins, modulate their binding to receptors (RECEPTORS, LDL), and thereby decrease their clearance from plasma. Elevated Apo C-I levels are associated with HYPERLIPOPROTEINEMIA and ATHEROSCLEROSIS.
Antilipemic agent that lowers cholesterol and triglycerides. It decreases low density lipoproteins and increases high density lipoproteins.
Low-density subclass of the high-density lipoproteins, with particle sizes between 8 to 13 nm.
Sleep disorders disrupt sleep during the night, or cause sleepiness during the day, caused by physiological or psychological factors. The common ones include snoring and sleep apnea, insomnia, parasomnias, sleep paralysis, restless legs syndrome, circa...
Epilepsy is defined as a disorder of brain function characterized by recurrent seizures that have a sudden onset. (Oxford Medical Dictionary). A seizure is caused by a sudden burst of excess electrical activity in the brain, causing a tempora...
