Researchers from France are trialling the use of brain modelling to improve epilepsy care in a large clinical study. In planning surgery, scientists create personalised brain models of patients and simulate the spread of abnormal activity during epileptic seizures. Earlier studies showed promising results for this approach which is now providing the basis for a large scale trial in a number of French hospitals.It is hoped that the approach may offer the first real breakthrough for people with drug resistant epilepsy who are undergoing brain surgery to treat their condition.If you would like to read more, then please use the link here:
