My lap top connector broke, leaving me out of business.
See you on Sunday, April 6th… :-(
A paintbrush is a powerful communication tool for experiences that are hard to explain in words.
It helps and allows your mind to wander without any restriction. The mixture of colors and the strokes define the inner feeling you want to express.
Your art is the extension of who you are, what you want and where you want to be. Your masterpiece, no matter how you made it, is priceless…
Researchers have noted a higher incidence of depression among patients with epilepsy than the general population or others with chronic conditions such as diabetes. For a long time, depression was thought to be a complication of epilepsy.
“People with a history of depression have a 3 to 7 times higher risk of developing epilepsy,” said Dr. Andres Kanner, a specialist on epilepsy at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago. “This kind of information is forcing us to take a second look at the interaction between depression and epilepsy.”
A pair of Swedish women have developed a remarkable solution for safety helmets: The Invisible Bike Helmet.
Tired of strapping ugly, uncomfortable styrofoam-and-plastic turtle shells to their heads, the pair came up with a revolutionary solution that does manage to give you full head protection without, remarkably, wearing anything on your head.
There’s also a new Inflatable Helmet. The airbag helmet is worn around the neck like a scarf or collar. The collar contains a folded up airbag that inflates in the event of an accident.
Sensors within the collar pick up strange or sudden movements. The airbag is shaped like a hood. It surrounds and protects the user’s head. (Natalie Portman wore one because of her character’s epilepsy in the movie Garden State!)
Then, of course, there’s lots more out there to choose from. And you can create your own personalized design…
What if you could predict an oncoming seizure in time for you stop it? Or even prevent it? That day may be coming sooner than you think, thanks to these seven new technologies.
You’ll learn what they are, how they work and how far along they are…
Below you’ll find a compilation of EFA summer camps and those supported by other organizations.
Ages range from 6 – 26, depending upon the camp and its activities.
Applications for this year’s summer camps are beginning. (Or starting very soon.) Dates and ages vary, depending upon the camp. So, it’s best you get the necessary info now, to avoid disappointment.
Camps should be contacted early for dates and applications.
Below is a compilation by website forum members who have had positive personal experiences with docs over the years…
Here are the facts, unhappy though they may be…
Epilepsy is the fourth most common neurological disorder in the U.S. after migraine, stroke, and Alzheimer’s disease. Its prevalence is greater than autism spectrum disorder, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease combined.
More people die from epilepsy than from breast cancer.
There are 200,000 new cases of epilepsy each year, and a total of more than 3 million Americans are affected by it.
Yet, public and private funding for epilepsy research lags far behind other neurological afflictions, at $35 a patient (compared, for instance, with $129 for Alzheimer’s and $280 for multiple sclerosis).
“It’s as if I’ve miniaturized my body and gone inside the patient.”
A science break-through: Robotic neurosurgery
This minimally invasive surgery avoids traditional drilling through the skull by using miniaturized surgical instruments that fit through a series of tiny incisions.
They are mounted on three separate robotic arms — allowing the surgeon maximum range of motion and precision and less trauma to the patient.
