Drug Resistant Epilepsy

Drug-resistant epilepsy, also known as refractory or pharmacoresistant epilepsy, is defined as failure of adequate trials of two appropriate and tolerated antiepileptic drugs (as monotherapies or in combination) to achieve sustained seizure freedom.

Angelman syndrome is a neurogenetic imprinting disorder caused by loss of the maternally inherited UBE3A gene and is characterized by generalized epilepsy, limited expressive speech, sleep dysfunction, and movement disorders. Here is the latest research.

Benign Rolandic Epilepsy

Benign Rolandic epilepsy is a partial idiopathic epilepsy of childhood presenting with a nocturnal seizure and with a typical EEG showing centrotemporal spike and multifocal or generalized sharp slow waves. Here is the latest research.

Dravet Syndrome

Dravet syndrome, previously known as severe myoclonic epilepsy of infancy (SMEI), is a rare, catastrophic, lifelong form of epilepsy with frequent and/or prolonged seizures that are often triggered by hot temperatures or fever. Discover the latest research on Dravet syndrome here.

Early Myoclonic Encephalopathy

Early myoclonic encephalopathy is an epileptic syndrome typically diagnosed by three months of age. It is characterized by frequent seizures and severe early encephalopathy and has a severely reduced life expectancy. Causes can include metabolic abnormalities or genetic mutations. Find the latest research on early myoclonic encephalopathy here.


Epilepsy is a chronic neurological disorder characterized by unprovoked and recurrent seizures. Discover the latest research on factors and mechanisms that underlie epilepsy here.

Frontal Lobe Epilepsy

Frontal lobe epilepsy is characterized by brief, recurring seizures, often during sleep. Depending on the areas of the brain that are affected, these seizures may be asymptomatic or present with motor or verbal symptoms. Find the latest research on frontal lobe epilepsy here.

Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy

Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy, previously known as idiopathic generalized epilepsy, is a form of generalized epilepsy whose cause is presumed to be genetic in origin. The first seizure typically occurs between the ages of 5-12, and symptoms may improve after the fourth decade of life. Seizure may be of different subtypes, including absence, myoclonic, and tonic-clonic. Find the latest research on juvenile myoclinic epilepsy here.

Lafora Disease

Lafora disease is an inherited neurodegenerative disorder characterized by the presence of abnormal glycogen inclusions, called Lafora bodies, in neurons and other tissues. Here is the latest research on this fatal, autosomal recessive disorder.

Landau-Kleffner Syndrome

Landau Kleffner syndrome (LKS), also called infantile acquired aphasia, acquired epileptic aphasia, or aphasia with convulsive disorder, is a rare childhood neurological syndrome characterized by the sudden or gradual development of aphasia (the inability to understand or express language) and an abnormal electroencephalogram. Discover the latest research on LKS here.
