Parkinson's & Epilepsy

In a first-in-world clinical trial, researchers at The Ohio State University College of Medicine are studying how well-focused ultrasound surgery works in adults with a specific type of epilepsy whose seizures are not controlled by medication.
A new neurostimulator developed by engineers at UC Berkeley can listen to and stimulate electric current in the brain at the same time, potentially delivering fine-tuned treatments to patients with diseases like epilepsy and Parkinson’s.
Singing may provide benefits beyond improving respiratory and swallow control in people with Parkinson’s disease, according to new data from Iowa State University researchers.
Michigan Medicine scientists have been on a quest to better understand unexpected death in epilepsy, or SUDEP — which claims the lives of roughly 1 in every 1,000 people with epilepsy or other seizure disorders.
An aquarium fish that senses the Earth’s magnetic field as it swims could help unlock how the human brain works and how diseases such as Parkinson’s and other neurological disorders function.
Biological markers responsible for extreme exhaustion in patients with cancer have now been linked to fatigue in those with Parkinson’s disease, according to new research from Rice University.
Researchers have discovered a novel treatment for reducing seizure activity in the brains of rodents, a discovery they hope might one day help people living with epilepsy.
Stanford researchers set out to test a seminal theory of Parkinson’s disease and several related conditions. What they found is more complex than anyone had imagined.
Smartphone software and technology can accurately track the severity of Parkinson’s disease symptoms, a new study shows.
Researchers have developed an algorithm that can be used to analyze a patient's medical history and predict whether the patient is at risk for developing Parkinson’s disease.
