Scholarly Journals are journals which are respected for the research and information they provide about the topic they cover. Scholarly journals publish good quality articles by subjecting them to a thorough and careful peer review process. Articles are often anonymously reviewed by several other subject experts; this process is called "peer review process" and such a periodical is considered a "refereed journal. A scholarly journal presents rigorously peer-reviewed scientific articles in the following categories: original Research Articles, Communications, Reviews and Mini-Reviews, Commentaries and Letters to the Editor. OMICS Group International is one of the leading Open Access Publishers which is publishing 700+ peer-reviewed journals with the dramatic effort of editorial board members.
Cognition is the mental act or process by which knowledge is acquired, including perception, intuition, and reasoning. Cognitive impairment is the strongest determinant of poor functional outcomes. Cognitive deficits are evident at the time of the first psychotic episode; they persist and may worsen in midlife and late life. These deficits are also manifest in intentionality, or Theory of Mind (ToM). It is increasingly becoming apparent that patients with Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy (JME) experience difficulties with various aspects of cognition. Studies that have attempted to find specific seizure-related factors contributing to and predicting cognitive dysfunction have provided conflicting and inconclusive results.
