Epilepsy Awareness #5 Brain Fog ASDs help to control seizures but they do have terrible side effects that we have to live with everyday. The black words on the brain are some bad things that they add. The white words falling out of the brain are good things that they can take away. #EPILEPSY #AWARENESS
A promising new treatment for epilepsy directly targets the nerve cells that cause seizures. Its creators hope to combine it with an implantable microchip that they previously developed to create an autonomous treatment that delivers epilepsy drugs directly to the brain right before a seizure.
Epilepsy drug target implications for sleep disruption in brain disorders
A study using the mutant fruitfly sleepless confirmed that the enzyme GABA transaminase, a target of some epilepsy drugs, contributes to sleep loss. The findings shed light on mechanisms that may be shared between sleep disruption and some neurological disorders. A better understanding of this connection could enable treatments that target both types of symptoms and perhaps provide better therapeutic efficacy.
