Surgery as a Treatment for Medically Intractable Epilepsy

Background: - Drug resistant epilepsy is the term used to describe epilepsy that cannot be controlled by medication. Many people whose seizures do not respond to medication will respond to surgical treatment, relieving seizures completely or almost completely in one-half to two-thirds of patients who qualify for surgery. The tests and surgery performed as part of this treatment are not experimental, but resea...


Summary: This is a multiple site, randomized, double blinded parallel-group controlled study. The purpose of this study is to evaluate efficacy, safety, and tolerability of repeated, daily sessions with the STARSTIM device, which delivers transcranial cathodal direct current stimulation (tDCS). Subjects will be treated with STARTSTIM or sham device for 10 sessions over a 2-week period. The subjects will be...

A First-In-Human (FIH) Study of Inhibitory Interneurons (NRTX- 1001) in Drug-Resistant Unilateral Mesial Temporal Lobe Epilepsy (MTLE)

Summary: This clinical trial is designed to test whether a single stereotactic intracerebral administration of inhibitory nerve cells into subjects with drug-resistant mesial temporal lobe epilepsy is safe (frequency of adverse events) and effective (seizure frequency).

Epilepsy Surgery and Cognition, Psychiatric Function and Quality of Life - Outcome 10 Years or More After Surgery

Summary: This study will give important information about long term consequences of temporal lobe epilepsy surgery on cognition (memory, language, concentration etc), psychiatric function and quality of life.

Optimized Intracranial EEG Targeting in Focal Epilepsy Based Upon Neuroimaging Connectomics

Summary: Upon successful completion of this study, the investigators expect the study's contribution to be the development of noninvasive imaging biomarkers to predict IEEG functional dynamics and epilepsy surgical outcomes. Findings from the present study may inform current and new therapies to map and alter seizure spread, and pave the way for less invasive, better- targeted, patient-specific interventio...

Regenerating the Adult Human Brain Through Exercise

Summary: Nearly 100 million Americans are affected by neurological disorders with an overall cost above $765 billion for the more prevalent conditions. Given this significant burden, effective treatments to prevent dementia and new disease modifying therapies are urgently needed. Regeneration of lost neurons with new ones (i.e., neurogenesis) is compromised at early stages of dementia and in part correlate...

Genetics of Epilepsy and Related Disorders

Summary: Investigators at Boston Children's Hospital are conducting research in order to better understand the genetic factors which may contribute to disorders related to epilepsy. These findings may help explain the broad spectrum of clinical characteristics and outcomes seen in people with epilepsy.

Stereotactic Laser Ablation for Temporal Lobe Epilepsy

Summary: The study is designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the Visualase MRI-guided laser ablation system for mesial temporal epilepsy (MTLE).

Investigating Epilepsy: Screening and Evaluation

Background: Epilepsy affects about 1 percent of the U.S. population. Most people with epilepsy respond well to medicine, but some do not. Researchers want people who have diagnosed or suspected epilepsy to participate in ongoing studies. They want to learn more about clinical care for epilepsy. They want fellows and residents to learn more about the care of people with epilepsy.

Evaluation of the 24/7 EEG SubQ System for Ultra Long-Term Recording of Patients With Temporal Lobe Epilepsy An Open-label, Prospective, Paired, Comparative Study

Summary: The 24/7 EEG™ SubQ system will be compared to simultaneously recorded video-EEG in the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (gold standard) and to self-reported seizure log books throughout 12 weeks of outpatient EEG recording. The present study is a 12-week open-label, prospective study with a paired, comparative design for pivotal evaluation of the safety and effectiveness of the 24/7 EEGTM SubQ system in s...

Impact of Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) on Spike Frequency and Brain Connectivity in Children With Benign Epilepsy With Centrotemporal Spike (BECTS)

Summary: Benign epilepsy with centrotemporal spikes (BECTS) is the most common pediatric epilepsy syndrome. Affected children typically have a mild seizure disorder, but yet have moderate difficulties with language, learning and attention that impact quality of life more than the seizures. Separate from the seizures, these children have very frequent abnormal activity in their brain known as interictal epi...

Auditory Stimulation Effect on Spindles and Sleep Dependent Learning in Rolandic Epilepsy

Summary: The investigators are recruiting children with Rolandic epilepsy and children without epilepsy (aged 4 years old and above) for a non-invasive brain imaging study using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Magnetoencephalography/Electroencephalography (MEG/EEG), and experimental tasks. The investigators hope to determine the brain circuits and brain rhythms affected in these children and ultimately i...
