Controlling seizure propagation in large-scale brain networks.

PLoS Comput Biol 2019 02 25;15(2):e1006805. Epub 2019 Feb 25.

Aix Marseille Université, Inserm, Institut de Neurosciences des Systèmes, UMR_S 1106, 13005, Marseille, France.

Information transmission in the human brain is a fundamentally dynamic network process. In partial epilepsy, this process is perturbed and highly synchronous seizures originate in a local network, the so-called epileptogenic zone (EZ), before recruiting other close or distant brain regions. We studied patient-specific brain network models of 15 drug-resistant epilepsy patients with implanted stereotactic electroencephalography (SEEG) electrodes. Read More

No latency to dentate granule cell epileptogenesis in experimental temporal lobe epilepsy with hippocampal sclerosis.

Epilepsia 2018 11 19;59(11):2019-2034. Epub 2018 Oct 19.

Neuroscience Institute, Morehouse School of Medicine, Atlanta, Georgia.

Objective: To determine when spontaneous granule cell epileptiform discharges first occur after hippocampal injury, and to identify the postinjury "latent" period as either a "silent" gestational state of epileptogenesis or a subtle epileptic state in gradual transition to a more obvious epileptic state.

Methods: Nonconvulsive status epilepticus evoked by perforant path stimulation in urethane-sedated rats produced selective and extensive hippocampal injury and a "latent" period that preceded the onset of the first clinically obvious epileptic seizures. Continuous granule cell layer depth recording and video monitoring assessed the time course of granule cell hyperexcitability and the onset/offset times of spontaneous epileptiform discharges and behavioral seizures.

Recurrent epileptiform discharges in the medial entorhinal cortex of kainate-treated rats are differentially sensitive to antiseizure drugs.

Epilepsia 2018 11 17;59(11):2035-2048. Epub 2018 Oct 17.

Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah.

Objective: Approximately 30% of patients with epilepsy are refractory to existing antiseizure drugs (ASDs). Given that the properties of the central nervous systems of these patients are likely to be altered due to their epilepsy, tissues from rodents that have undergone epileptogenesis might provide a therapeutically relevant disease substrate for identifying compounds capable of attenuating pharmacoresistant seizures. To facilitate the development of such a model, this study describes the effects of classical glutamate receptor antagonists and 20 ASDs on recurrent epileptiform discharges (REDs) in brain slices derived from the kainate-induced status epilepticus model of temporal lobe epilepsy (KA-rats).

Potentiating KCC2 activity is sufficient to limit the onset and severity of seizures.

Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 2018 10 17;115(40):10166-10171. Epub 2018 Sep 17.

Department of Neuroscience, Physiology and Pharmacology, University College London, London, WC1E 6BT, United Kingdom;

The type 2 K/Cl cotransporter (KCC2) allows neurons to maintain low intracellular levels of Cl, a prerequisite for efficient synaptic inhibition. Reductions in KCC2 activity are evident in epilepsy; however, whether these deficits directly contribute to the underlying pathophysiology remains controversial. To address this issue, we created knock-in mice in which threonines 906 and 1007 within KCC2 have been mutated to alanines (KCC2-T906A/T1007A), which prevents its phospho-dependent inactivation.

Imaging fast electrical activity in the brain during ictal epileptiform discharges with electrical impedance tomography.

Neuroimage Clin 2018 5;20:674-684. Epub 2018 Sep 5.

Department of Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering, University College London, UK.

Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT) is an emerging medical imaging technique which can produce tomographic images of internal impedance changes within an object using non-penetrating surface electrodes. It has previously been used to image impedance changes due to neuronal depolarisation during evoked potentials in the rat somatosensory cortex with a resolution of 2 ms and <200 μm, using an epicortical electrode array. The purpose of this work was to use this technique to elucidate the intracortical spatiotemporal trajectory of ictal spike-and-wave discharges (SWDs), induced by electrical stimulation in an acute rat model of epilepsy, throughout the cerebral cortex.

[Febrile seizures: questions and answers].

Medicina (B Aires) 2018;78 Suppl 2:18-24

Cátedra de Neuropediatría, Facultad de Medicina, Universidad de la República, Montevideo, Uruguay.

A febrile seizure occurs in association with fever in a child aged 6 to 60 months, without central nervous system infection or other known cause of acute seizures in a child without a prior history of afebrile seizures. Febrile seizures occur in about 2-5% of children. Central nervous system infections should be considered in patients with febrile seizures, even though the frequency of this possibility is low, especially when patients do not return to baseline.

Transient microstructural brain anomalies and epileptiform discharges in mice defective for epilepsy and language-related NMDA receptor subunit gene Grin2a.

Epilepsia 2018 10 26;59(10):1919-1930. Epub 2018 Aug 26.

INSERM, UMR1249, INMED, Aix-Marseille University, Marseille, France.

Objective: The epilepsy-aphasia spectrum (EAS) is a heterogeneous group of age-dependent childhood disorders characterized by sleep-activated discharges associated with infrequent seizures and language, cognitive, and behavioral deficits. Defects in the GRIN2A gene, encoding a subunit of glutamate-gated N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptors, represent the most important cause of EAS identified so far. Neocortical or thalamic lesions were detected in a subset of severe EAS disorders, and more subtle anomalies were reported in patients with so-called "benign" phenotypes. Read More

GABA Receptor Activity Suppresses the Transition from Inter-ictal to Ictal Epileptiform Discharges in Juvenile Mouse Hippocampus.

Neurosci Bull 2018 Dec 20;34(6):1007-1016. Epub 2018 Aug 20.

Department of Neurology, Ren Ji Hospital, School of Medicine, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, 200127, China.

Exploring the transition from inter-ictal to ictal epileptiform discharges (IDs) and how GABA receptor-mediated action affects the onset of IDs will enrich our understanding of epileptogenesis and epilepsy treatment. We used Mg-free artificial cerebrospinal fluid (ACSF) to induce epileptiform discharges in juvenile mouse hippocampal slices and used a micro-electrode array to record the discharges. After the slices were exposed to Mg-free ACSF for 10 min-20 min, synchronous recurrent seizure-like events were recorded across the slices, and each event evolved from inter-ictal epileptiform discharges (IIDs) to pre-ictal epileptiform discharges (PIDs), and then to IDs.

Frequency-dependent characterisation of impedance changes during epileptiform activity in a rat model of epilepsy.

Physiol Meas 2018 08 20;39(8):085003. Epub 2018 Aug 20.

Department of Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering, University College London, London, United Kingdom.

Objective: Electrical impedance tomography (EIT) can be used to image impedance changes associated with epileptiform activity and so holds therapeutic potential for improving presurgical localisation of the ictal onset zone in patients with treatment-resistant epilepsy. There are two principal impedance changes which occur during seizures that may be imaged with EIT: (a) a fast, transient impedance decrease over milliseconds due to hypersynchronous neuronal depolarisation in individual ictal discharges; and (b) a larger, slow impedance increase caused by cell swelling over the course of the seizure. The magnitude of these signals is highly dependent on the carrier frequency of applied current used for obtaining impedance measurements. Read More

Could Rolandic spikes be a prognostic factor of the neurocognitive outcome of children with BECTS?

Epilepsy Behav 2018 09 19;86:157-162. Epub 2018 Jul 19.

"La Sapienza" University, Department of Pediatrics, Child Neurology Division, Italy. Electronic address:

Introduction: Rolandic epilepsy, also known as benign childhood epilepsy with centrotemporal spikes (BECTS), is one of the most common epileptic syndromes in previously healthy children. Despite what was known about the benignity of this syndrome, there is always more evidence about the involvement of the cognitive functions with different deficits in several domains to be investigated.

Aim Of The Study: The aim of our study was to describe prognostic electroencephalogram (EEG) pattern of an adverse cognitive development to recognize patients at higher risk of lasting cognitive deficits that could need antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) or an improved neurocognitive therapy. Read More
