    While the amygdala is considered to play a critical role in temporal lobe epilepsy, conclusions on underlying pathophysiological mechanisms have been derived largely from experimental animal studies. Therefore, the present study aimed to characterize synaptic network interactions, focusing on...

  • In Vivo Measurement of Hippocampal GABAA/cBZR Density with [18F]-Flumazenil PET for the Study of Disease Progression in an Animal Model of Temporal Lobe Epilepsy. Vivash, Lucy; Gregoire, Marie-Claude; Bouilleret, Viviane; Berard, Alexis; Wimberley, Catriona; Binns, David; Roselt, Peter; Katsifis, Andrew; Myers, Damian E.; Hicks, Rodney J.; O'Brien, Terence J.; Dedeurwaerdere, Stefanie // PLoS ONE;Jan2014, Vol. 9 Issue 1, p1 

    Purpose: Imbalance of inhibitory GABAergic neurotransmission has been proposed to play a role in the pathogenesis of temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE). This study aimed to investigate whether [18F]-flumazenil ([18F]-FMZ) PET could be used to non-invasively characterise GABAA/central benzodiazepine...

    Idiopathic generalised epilepsies (IGEs) constitute one-third of all epilepsies and the majority start during childhood or adolescence in otherwise healthy individuals. IGEs are genetically determined. Three main types of seizures in IGEs are typical absences, generalised tonic-clonic seizures...

    Mapping the distribution of GABAA receptor subtypes represents a promising approach to characterize alterations in cortical circuitry associated with neurological disorders. We previously reported subtype-selective changes in GABAA receptor expression in the grey matter of patients with focal...

Van Rijckevorsel, Daniel; Gallez, Bernard // European Journal of Nuclear Medicine & Molecular Imaging;2003, Vol. 30 Issue 12, p1630 

    Fluorine-18 fluoroethylflumazenil ([18F]FEF) is a tracer for central benzodiazepine (BZ) receptors which is proposed as an alternative to carbon-11 flumazenil for in vivo imaging using positron emission tomography (PET) in humans. In this study, [18F]FEF kinetic data were acquired using a 60-min...

    It has recently been demonstrated that patients with Angelman's syndrome who exhibited a deletion on cytogenetic tests show more severe clinical pictures with drug-resistant epilepsy than patients with Angelman's syndrome not carrying the deletion. To verify if this difference in clinical...
