Ictal SPECT With Intra-arterial Injection

In this study, the investigators will select one patient with refractory focal epilepsy with frequent seizures of short duration, which can not be localized with early ictal SPECT with intravenous injection in a cubital vein. An arterial catheter will be inserted. The right groin will be disinfected using an alcoholic ...

Phase N/A

Treatment Outcomes of CBT for PNES

Participants come to our laboratory for a total of 11 sessions. During the initial visit, participants complete several questionnaires assessing demographics, personality style, relationships with friends and family, as well as past and current PNES symptoms. Participants must provide EEG results indicating a diagnosis of psychogenic non-epileptic seizures. Participants receive ...

Phase N/A

IVIG in Patients With VGKC Ab Associated Autoimmune Epilepsy

The purpose of this study is to determine if intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) treatment significantly reduces the number of epileptic seizures in cases of autoimmune epilepsy. Potential participants will be screened at an outpatient neurology clinic visit appointment. Interested qualified potential participants will be consented and offered participation in this trial. ...


Single Neurons Responses During Visual Recognition in Epileptic Patients

In this interventional study, patients explored with mixed intracerebral electrodes (micro and macro-contacts) will be presented sets of images (objects, unknown faces, famous faces). Spikes and Multi-Unit-Activity will be recorded and analyzed and compared between conditions.

Phase N/A

Predictive Value of Biomarkers of the Alzheimer's Disease (AD) in Elderly Patients With New-onset Epilepsy

Beyond 60 years, the prevalence of epilepsy is estimated at approximately 1% and increases with age. In these patients, the etiology of epilepsy is unknown in 25% of cases, even up to 55% after 65 years. Although new-onset epilepsy in the elderly is associated with a vascular disease in 50% ...

Phase N/A

Efficacy of Omega-3 as Adjunctive Therapy for Medically Intractable Epilepsy: A Prospective Open-label Pilot Study

This study will enroll total 30 patients with medically intractable epilepsy. The patients will be fully assessed on the enrollment, and then seizure frequency will be counted for three months without changing medication. After three months, Omega-3 will be administered for next three months. Seizure frequency, questionnaires evaluating mood and ...


Depression Stress and Vulnerability Factors in Drug Resistant Focal Epilepsies

Psychiatric disturbances, notably depression, occur frequently as co-morbid conditions with epilepsy. A complex, probably bidirectional relationship between epilepsy and depression has been postulated. Both epilepsy and depression also interact with stressful life events, but only some patients develop these disorders after a stressful event, indicating the possibility of a "vulnerable" ...

Phase N/A

Repeated TMS at Low Frequencies to Reduce Seizure Occurrence

Perform non-invasive neuro-navigated repeated Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) at low frequencies (LF) with the intent to reduce the occurrence of seizures over time. Seizure reduction and improvements in the quality of life in patients with epilepsy will be associated with increased cortical inhibition resulting from the LF-rTMS sessions over time. ...

Phase N/A

Evaluating the Impact of a Community Health Worker Program in Neno Malawi

The objectives of the household model program are: Timely case finding through education and screening for common, treatable conditions; Linkage to care for symptomatic clients along with those qualifying through routine screening; Ongoing support and accompaniment of patients in care, including adherence support, psychosocial support, and tracking of missed patient ...

Phase N/A

Transcutaneous Vagal Nerve Stimulation: Influence on miRNA Inflammation Cerebral Resting State and Gastric Motility

Transcutaneous vagal nerve stimulation (tVNS) is a non-invasive treatment option for epilepsy. TVNS works via electrical stimulation of the vagal nerve in the outer ear area via two steel electrodes and is performed for about 4 hours per day. Its mechanism of action is unknown. We hypothesize that expression of ...
