Biomarker for Creatine Deficiency Syndromes (BioCDS)

The Creatine Deficiency Syndromes (CDS) are a group of inborn errors of metabolism which interrupt the biosynthesis or transportation of creatine. Individuals with CDS classically present neurological symptoms (seizures, movement disorders and myopathy), and behavioral manifestations. This group includes two creatine biosynthesis disorders (Guanidinoacetate Methyltransferase Deficiency and L-Arginine: Glycine Amidinotransferase ...

Phase N/A

Longitudinal Early Epilepsy Study

The aim is to study the cognitive and brain development of children with absence epilepsy. In addition, this study aims to identify prognostic factors for cognitive deterioration and/or poor seizure control. Objective To study the development of cognition in children with absence epilepsy and the functional brain organization over time. ...

Phase N/A

Microgrid II - Electrocorticography Signals for Human Hand Prosthetics

Stroke, spinal cord injury, extremity injury and degenerative/locked-in syndromes are among those conditions that may benefit from sustainable neuroprosthetic options. The investigators have studied human motor cortex and related cortical areas with direct brain recording (electrocorticography or ECoG) as a signal for motor neuroprosthetics. Completing exciting studies in humans with ...

Phase N/A

Noninvasive Pre-surgical Evaluation of Patients With Focal Epilepsy and Establishment of a Normative Imaging Database

Objectives: The overall study objective is to compare the sensitivities and specificities of morphometric analysis techniques using structural MRI images based on pre- and postsurgical localization of epileptic foci in patients undergoing presurgical evaluation for medically refractory epilepsy. To carry out these analyses, we aim to establish an age-stratified normative ...

Phase N/A

Genetics of Severe Early Onset Epilepsies

Many children with epilepsy experience seizures which respond well to treatment. A few types of epilepsy, however, are characterized by seizures which begin very early in childhood and are associated with severe intellectual and/or developmental disabilities. These conditions, known as progressive epileptic encephalopathies, are particularly severe and are often difficult ...

Phase N/A

National Study on the Interest of EEG-fMRI in the Presurgical Evaluation of Partial Epilepsies Drug

The main goal of this study is to evaluate the additional value of EEG-fMRI method in the presurgical evaluation of focal intractable epilepsy. To consider a patient for surgery, the main difficulty is to define accurately the epileptogenic zone. This definition is complex and is often supported by several types ...

Phase N/A

Optimization of Human Cortical Stimulation

The subject will have already been scheduled for placement of the ECoG electrodes on the surface of the brain and who will, for all clinical purposes, subsequently receive stimulation for mapping of function of the ECoG sites. The decision to place the electrodes on the brain, the location of the ...

Phase N/A

A Study of Hemodynamic Changes Using Near Infra-red Spectrometry (NIRS) in Infantile Epilepsy Spasms

This study will included 20 children presenting with epilepsy with spasms. It aims to offer these children, non invasively and without supplementary examinations, a recording of local and cerebral hemodynamic changes concomitant with an electroencephalographic recording during epileptic episodes. This will be carried out by combining optical imaging using near ...

Phase N/A

Genetic and Electrophysiologic Study in Focal Drug-resistant Epilepsies

Genetic abnormalities in focal epilepsies are well known. A novel gene (DEPDC5) was identified, associated with various genotypes of epilepsies. Recently, DEPDC5 mutations were identified also inside focal cortical dysplasias. This could suggest that a somatic mutation in DEPDC5 could be responsible for the cortical dysplasia. The study aims to ...

Phase N/A

Antibodies Causing Epilepsy Syndromes: The ACES Study.

Recently new treatable causes of epilepsy have been identified. These disorders are caused by a disruption of the balance in the brain caused by inflammation. This inflammatory reaction is caused by an autologous reaction of the immune system to specific brain proteins. The body produces antibodies to specific parts of ...
