New Tool for Medication-Resistant Epilepsy

The Epilepsy Center at the UC Gardner Neuroscience Institute is now offering a device the government recently approved to ease the crippling seizures of epilepsy, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. The Responsive Neuro Stimulator puts electrodes on the surface of a patient’s brain over the focus of a seizure, then connects the electrodes to a tiny computer implanted in the skull. When the computer recognizes seizure discharges, the device sends an electrical pulse to the focus point to block the seizure’s spread.
