Could metabolism play a role in epilepsy?


February 19, 2014


Journal of Visualized Experiments (JOVE)


Researchers are exploring a possible link between metabolic defects and seizures. They determined that diet could influence susceptibility to seizures, and they have identified a common diabetes drug that could be useful in treating disorders such as epilepsy. This connection was made in the lab by measuring fruit fly movement with inexpensive web-cams. While there is no known trigger behind seizures in people with epilepsy, the researchers are using their drug-screening technique to investigate potential metabolic causes—using genetically modified, seizure-prone flies.

Researchers from the Franciscan University of Steubenville, Ohio are exploring a possible link between metabolic defects and seizures. They determined that diet could influence susceptibility to seizures, and they have identified a common diabetes drug that could be useful in treating disorders such as epilepsy.

    Jay Cutler is absolutely wonderful in front of empty mirrors and other
    imaginable places. The aesthetics going on here is very tight, expressive;
    and actually it seems like the expression, positure, and still man-boyish
    body is composed in a way so strict and sharp that the cognitive level of
    the viewer is explicitly penetrated in a way that constantly, again and
    again, implicitly redirects the effect to the heart, which, off course,
    itself becomes more and more empty – by the way this is an axiomatic body
    builder condition ano 2014, fuck it. However, this body has a magical touch
    coupled with its own existence, as its composition leaves you absolutely
    energized just as you almost could not remember your own body (structure),
    how it could look, and therefore was about to lose the possibility to ask
    yourself some basic bb-questions, e.g. “can you feel?”, “can you react?”,
    “do you enjoy your emotion system at work?”, “why do you love people more
    than you hate yourself?”. One thing is for sure; the body picture “Körper
    Bild” of Jay Cutler is a very effective emotional training partner; so
    hail the aesthetics of a tight body communicated in small circuits and
    settings, either in front or behind your own normally identifiable person,
    mirrors or other less ugly places. You are an artist, Jay! Well, maybe not
    in your own or public opinion, but who gives a fuck as it’s evident that
    the effect of your work is similar to other great works with aesthetic

    Not so much inspirational sounding as it is gay. I was actually expecting
    homo “redneck rock” like Mushroom Head or Linkin Park or something really
    poser and gay like that I can’t think of anymore because I hqve avoided the
    “rock” on the radio for the last 10 years.
