  • Vascular Dementia

    Vascular dementia (VaD) is a general term describing problems with reasoning, planning, judgment, memory, and other thought processes caused by brain damage from impaired blood flow to the brain. Cognitive rehabilitation and physical therapy are the mainstays of dementia treatment, although often ineffective[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Encephalitis

    Encephalitis is inflammation of the brain. Severity is variable. Symptoms may include headache, fever, confusion, a stiff neck, and vomiting. Complications may include seizures, hallucinations, trouble speaking, memory problems, and problems with hearing.Causes of encephalitis include viruses such as herpes simplex virus[…][en.wikipedia.org]

  • Rolandic Epilepsy

    Rolandic epilepsy, sometimes also referred to as benign childhood epilepsy with centrotemporal spikes, is the most common type of childhood epilepsy. Spontaneous remission before puberty is observed in the majority of cases. Characteristic RE seizures are hemifacial motor seizures, sometimes also motorsensory[…][symptoma.com]

  • Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease

    Prion diseases are unique transmissible neurodegenerative diseases that have diverse phenotypes and can be familial, sporadic, or acquired by infection. Recent findings indicate that the PrP genotype and the PrP(Sc) type have a major influence on the disease phenotype in both sporadic and familial human prion[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Fragile X Syndrome

    Fragile X syndrome is a genetic condition caused by a mutation of the fragile X mental retardation 1 (FMR1) gene on the X chromosome. Fragile X syndrome in males is usually more severe than in females and males are never asymptomatic. This is because males have only one X chromosome (unlike females that have 2[…][symptoma.com]

    The central-parietal regions exhibited sharp wave and spike paroxysmal activity followed by the patient awakening, with electrical sensations.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Orgasm immediately ensued, with persistence of generalized paroxysmal EEG activity. Resumption of phenobarbital therapy immediately conrolled her seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
