An Australian team of neurobiologists have discovered that the rhythmic action of tooth-brushing can trigger seizures in epilepsy sufferers. This unusual observation will allow a better understanding of this condition and constitutes a progress towards more effective treatments.

Brushing teeth can trigger epileptic seizures in people with damage to a small, specific spot in the brain, Australian researchers have discovered.

The breakthrough in this rare trigger will help neurologists understand how the most common triggers – sleep and stress – can spark fits.
