Abstract

Early infantile epileptic encephalopathy (EIEE) 65 was recently shown to be caused by the cytoplasmic FMRP interacting protein 2 (CYFIP2) mutation. To date, only 5 cases have been reported in two articles, and all the outcomes in all cases were poor. In this study, we reported an 8-mont...read more

Fragile X-associated tremor/ataxia syndrome

Fragile X-associated tremor/ataxia syndrome (FXTAS) is caused by the expansion of CGG triple repeat in the FMR1 gene and characterized by movement problems and cognitive impairment. Here is the latest research.

Electroencephalography

Electroencephalography (EEG) is an electrophysiological technique used to record electrical activity in the brain. It is commonly used in the diagnosis of epilepsy, sleep disorders, coma, encephalopathies, and brain death. Find the latest research on EEG here.

Nodding Syndrome

Nodding Syndrome is a neurological and epileptiform disorder characterized by psychomotor, mental, and growth retardation. Discover the latest research on Nodding 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.

Fragile X Syndrome

Fragile X syndrome is caused by an expanded CGG repeat (> 200 repeats) in the 5' untranslated portion of the fragile mental retardation 1 gene (FMR1) within the X chromosome, leading to deficiency of fragile X mental retardation protein (FMRP). It is cognitive impairment, hyperactivity, SEIZURES, language delay, and enlargement of the ears, head, and testes. Intellectual disability occurs in nearly all males and roughly 50% of females with the full mutation. Discover the latest research on Fragile X syndrome here.

Comparative Sequencing

Inter/Intra-Species: Comparative Sequencing describes the sequencing techniques that compare between and within species genomes. Discover the latest research on comparative sequencing of inter/intra-species here.
