Predicting Onset (& remission) of Infantile Spasms by pairing Clinical Signs and a Disease Biomarker - CSF-GABA

 3rd World Congress on pediatric Neurology and Pediatric Surgery on October 01-02, 2018 at Osaka, Japan...

We are glad to welcome Dr. Stephenson W Nkinin to present his valuable talk on "Predicting Onset (& remission) of Infantile Spasms by pairing Clinical Signs and a Disease Biomarker - CSF-GABA" at Neuropediatrics 2018 conference

Introduction:Infantile spasms, or West Syndrome (WS), represent one of the most devastating seizure disorders of pediatric epilepsy, and are more frequently associated with poor intellectual outcomes. Early diagnosis with prompt initiation of treatment is key to effective control of spasms and may improve patient outcomes. Although the onset of WS is known to typically happen between ages 4-8 months, very little is known about the precise neuromechanical triggers or biochemical disease markers that herald its onset or remission. Diagnosis of WS usually involves visual observation of spasms and confirmation of hypsarrhythmia (disorganized wave-pattern) with an electroencephalogram (EEG). Studies have identified .................

Pediatric Neuro-immunology Disorders

Autoimmune disorders are diseases in which the body’s immune system attacks healthy tissue. These disorders can affect many different parts of the body. Autoimmune disorders that affect their central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord). These disorders can affect a child’s ability to eat, walk, talk, think or move normally.

3rd World Congress on Pediatric Neurology and Pediatric Surgery welcomes you to participate, share and explore the new findings in the field of Pediatrics....

Pediatric Neuromuscular Disorders

The neuromuscular system includes all muscles throughout the body and the nerves that connect them. There are a wide variety of neuromuscular disorders that can occur in children. These conditions impact the peripheral nervous system, which includes the muscles, neuromuscular (nerve-muscle) junction, peripheral nerves in the limbs and motor-nerve cells in the spinal cord.


There are many types of neuromuscular disorders, including:
  • Brachial plexopathy – This is a condition in which there is damage on each side of the neck where the nerve roots from the spinal cord split into the nerves for each arm. 
  • Charcot-Marie-Tooth syndrome (CMT) – CMT is an inherited neurological disorder that often causes problems with walking, speaking, breathing and swallowing. 
  • Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) – CIDP is a neurological disorder that causes progressive weakness and reduced function in the arms and legs. 
  • Congenital myopathy – Congenital myopathies are a group of rare, congenital (present at birth) muscle diseases that are caused by genetic defects. 
  • Guillain-Barre syndrome – Guillain-Barre syndrome causes the body’s immune system to attack the nerves, which can eventually lead to paralysis throughout the body. 
  • Muscular dystrophy – Muscular dystrophy is an inherited, genetic condition that causes weakness in the muscle and usually shows signs in the first few years of a child’s life. 
  • Myasthenia gravis – Myasthenia gravis causes weakness and rapid fatigue of the muscles over which a person normally has control.


While signs and symptoms vary according to the specific neuromuscular condition, some of the hallmarks of these conditions are pain and muscle weakness.

This event will bring to you oral and poster presentations, young research forum, technical workshops along with Keynote talks from experts and panel discussions. Neuropediatrics 2018 offers a fantastic opportunity to make networks in the field of Pediatric Neurology and Pediatric Surgery, by providing collaborations.

Neuromuscular Disease in Children

Neuromuscular Disease in Children

What Are Neuromuscular Diseases?
Neuromuscular diseases affect the lower motor neurons of the nervous system, which may include the muscles, nerves, or the junction between muscles and nerves (known as a neuromuscular junction). A familiar group of neuromuscular disorders is known as muscular dystrophies, but there are many other kinds of neuromuscular disorders.

What Causes Neuromuscular Disease?

There are many different of pediatric neuromuscular disease types. These may include inherited neuropathies, such as Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) disease, and muscular dystrophies such as Duchenne, congenital myasthenic syndromes, and congenital myopathies. Since the mid-1980s, science has made many breakthroughs in understanding the genetic causes of neuromuscular diseases, as well as their inheritance patterns. Through genetic testing and counseling, patients and their families can better understand how disorders are inherited and the roles that genes play in certain diseases.

Some neuromuscular diseases are caused by an immune imbalance. They may have markers in the blood that can be tested, or they may require other tests, such as an electromyogram (EMG), to confirm the diagnosis.

What Are the Symptoms of Neuromuscular Disease?

Children with neuromuscular disease symptoms may have:
  • Low muscle tone (hypotonia) 
  • Delayed motor milestones like delayed walking or abnormal gait 
  • Muscle weakness, atrophy, twitching, or rippling 
Although some of these symptoms may be due to life-threatening diseases, others do not affect life expectancy and may be treatable.

Neuromuscular Disorders Diagnosis

Some neuromuscular disorders can be diagnosed with a blood test alone. Others require a muscle or nerve biopsy. A biopsy involves making a small incision, removing a piece of tissue, and examining it in a laboratory. Clinical examinations can also lead to diagnoses.

Because some disorders respond best to early treatment, it’s important to get an accurate diagnosis as soon as you suspect a child has a neuromuscular disorder. Early treatment can also help prevent some secondary effects of the conditions.

Diagnosis of Pediatric Neurology

Pediatric Neurology offers expertise in the diagnosis and management of disorders of the nervous system in children. Certain neurological conditions and diseases are especially common among children. Pediatric neurologists provides an early diagnosis and treatment plan for a wide range of neurological disorders in children, including:
  • Epilepsy including treatment with medications, ketogenic diet, vagal nerve stimulator, and surgical evaluations
  • Pediatric headache including migraine
  • Neuromuscular disorders including at the multidisciplinary Muscular Dystrophy Association clinic
  • Developmental delay
  • Movement Disorders including Tourette’s Syndrome
  • Genetic disorders such as Rett syndrome
  • Cerebral palsy

Radiation Therapy

While some children with brain and spinal tumors benefit from radiation therapy, this treatment can affect neurological development in some young patients. A pediatric radiation oncologist will work with the other cancer specialists managing your child’s care to see if radiation therapy is the most effective treatment option for your child. If so, use radiation therapy that is highly targeted to the tumor, sparing nearby healthy tissue.


Rehabilitation is a major component of care for children with certain disorders of the nervous system, such as cerebral palsy, spinal muscular atrophy, and other disorders affecting movement. Your child may also need physical or occupational therapy after surgery. Pediatric rehabilitation specialists have special training in the rehabilitation of children. They will customize a program of care to help your child regain or maintain movement and function.

Neurochemistry and Neuroscience

Neurochemistry is the study of the identities, structures and functions of compounds (neurochemicals) that are generated by and that modulate the nervous system. Neurochemicals include oxytocin, serotonin, dopamine and other neurotransmitters and neurotransmitter-regulating substances. Every person's brain chemistry is a little bit different, and a number of things can play a role in the levels of various neurotransmitters in the brain, and how those chemicals affect the brain's function. It is believed that variations in brain chemistry may explain a variety of behavioral disorders and phenomena. The brain is a network of specialized cells called neurons. Each neuron has reserves of neurotransmitters which it can fire when ordered to do so, along with receptors for specific neurotransmitters. Brain activity is created by sending messages with neurotransmitters to signal various cell activities throughout the brain and nervous system. Someone's environment can influence the levels of neurotransmitters and their receptors in the brain, as can factors like diet, medications, and various drugs.

Neuroscience is a multidisciplinary science that is concerned with the study of the structure and function of the nervous system. It encompasses the evolution, development, cellular and molecular biology, physiology, anatomy and pharmacology of the nervous system, as well as computational, behavioural and cognitive neuroscience.

The importance of this research cannot be overstated. More than 1,000 disorders of the brain and nervous system result in more hospitalizations and lost productivity than any other disease group, including heart disease and cancer.

3rd World Congress on Pediatric Neurology and Pediatric Surgery is going to be held on October 01-02, 2018 at Osaka, Japan.

This Is How Music Can Change Your Brain

Science has shown that when children learn to play music, their brains begin to hear and process sounds that they couldn’t otherwise hear. This helps them develop “neurophysiological distinction” between certain sounds that can aid in literacy, which can translate into improved academic results for kids. A new study from Northwestern University revealed that in order to fully reap the cognitive benefits of a music class, kids can’t just sit there and let the sound of music wash over them.

They have to be actively engaged in the music and participate in the class. “Even in a group of highly motivated students, small variations in music engagement — attendance and class participation — predicted the strength of neural processing after music training,” said Nina Kraus, director of Northwestern’s Auditory Neuroscience Laboratory.

Additionally, the study showed that students who played instruments in class had more improved neural processing than the children who attended the music appreciation group. “We like to say that ‘making music matters,'” said Kraus. “Because it is only through the active generation and manipulation of sound that music can rewire the brain.”

The neuroscientists are using several tools to monitor changes in them as they grow: MRI to monitor changes through brain scans, EEG to track electrical activity in the brains, behavioral testing and other such techniques.

Within two years of the study, the neuroscientists found the auditory systems of children in the music program were maturing faster in them than in the other children. The fine-tuning of their auditory pathway could accelerate their development of language and reading, as well as other abilities – a potential effect which the scientists are continuing to study.
