The central biological questions of our RIDC is the investigation of basic mechanisms that lead to epilepsy and stroke and the injury mechanisms that follow the disease onset and progression, and are related to prevention, treatment and rehabilitation. Our goals are to develop new methods and techniques to improve the understanding of mechanisms of damage, plasticity and repair in epile...
Perisylvian Syndrome (PS) is used when patients present clinical manifestations due to lesions on perisylvian or opercular region. Clinically, symptoms may vary from developmental language disturbance (DLD) to refractory epilepsy. The most frequent lesion is polymicrogyria. In previous studies, we have reported 12 families with PS and we showed that the syndrome is genetically heterogen...
Epilepsy can be described as a temporary dysfunction of a set of neurons that generates seizure expression. It is a disorder that may implicate in others such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD), dysfunction in which symptoms range from deficits in social communication and social interaction and restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior. Although there are several studies that alread...
Epileptic encephalopathy is the entity in which the epileptic activity by itself may contribute to bad results, both in terms of epilepsy as in terms of serious cognitive and behavioral impairment. Understanding the different phenotypes in patients with epileptic encephalopathies is helpful to characterize genetic defects that can be associated, being fundamental to conduct clinical stu...
This study aims to assess the language, learning, behavior and electrophysiological auditory tests in children with rolandic epilepsy and temporal lobe epilepsy and to compare with the normal children. We will select 45 individuals of both genders, aged eight to 14 years, divided into three groups: Group I comprise 15 children with rolandic epilepsy, Group II comprises 15 children with ...
