Low-frequency fiber-tract stimulation of the corpus callosum suppresses both cortical and cortically induced hippocampal seizures in an acute model of focal cortical seizures. The stimulation paradigm is selective, as it is only effective when targeted to specific regions of the corpus callosum that project maximally to cortical regions generating the seizure activity. Selective placement of stimulation electrodes along the corpus callosum could be used as a patient-specific treatment for cortical epilepsies.

Study Finds Presence of Wires, Bulky Size and Need for Support Important Factors in Wearing Multimodal Sensor Devices Intended to Detect Epileptic Seizures
This study assessed the first-hand experiences of people with epilepsy using wearable devices continuously over a period of time, with the aim of understanding how acceptable and easy they were to use, and whether it is reasonable to expect that people will use them.
