Temporal lobe epilepsy
(TLE) is the most common type of intractable and partial epilepsies which is predominantly associated with history of febrile convulsions and anterior temporal lobe EEG abnormalities [1, 2].
Scientists at Newcastle University have used brain scans from patients with the most common type of epilepsy - temporal lobe epilepsy
- and computer modelling techniques to look at the brain as an example of a computer network.
The research is published today and is believed to be the first study to combine computational modelling of brain dynamics with patient-specific MRI data from individuals with temporal lobe epilepsy
The second section addresses grafting neural stem cells and other stem cells to treat neurological disorders like Parkinson's disease, stroke, temporal lobe epilepsy
, Alzheimer's disease, and spinal cord injury, as well as advances in manufacturing neural cell types from human pluripotent stem cells for central nervous system disorders.
Approximately 80 percent of epilepsy cases are what is known as temporal lobe epilepsy
, in which the seizures appear to originate in the temporal lobe of the brain.
A quantitative analysis of spiking in patients with temporal lobe epilepsy
by Lieb et al  has revealed that the epileptogenic focus (the region of the brain that triggers a seizure) generates spikes at maximum mean spiking rate and minimum coefficient of variation, and minimum variance in inter-spike intervals.
Later, he admitted he wasn't sure what was wrong and referred me to a specialist at London's National Hospital who spotted the symptoms and diagnosed temporal lobe epilepsy
