  • Sex-steroid hormones in women with epilepsy. American journal of electroneurodiagnostic technology Jette, N., Morrell, M. J. 2005; 45 (1): 36-48


    Women with epilepsy face unique challenges, in part related to changes in the seizure threshold at various times in the menstrual cycle or during their reproductive life. Ovarian sex-steroid hormones alter the excitability of the central nervous system (CNS) and alter the frequency and severity of seizures. By understanding the effects of hormones on seizures, clinicians are better equipped to treat hormonally mediated epilepsy.
