BACKGROUND It is of clinical importance to localize pathologic brain tissue in epilepsy. Noninvasive localization of cortical areas associated with interictal epileptiform spikes may provide important information to facilitate presurgical planning for intractable epilepsy patients. METHODS A cortical potential imaging (CPI) technique was used to(More)
The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate feasibility of using trends in Kolmogorov entropy to anticipate seizures in pediatric patients with intractable epilepsy. Surface and intracranial recordings of preseizure and seizure activity were obtained from five patients and subjected to time series analysis using Kolmogorov entropy. This metric was compared(More)
SUMMARY Robust, automated seizure detection has long been an important goal in epilepsy research because of both the possibilities for portable intervention devices and the potential to provide prompter, more efficient treatment while in clinic. The authors present results on how well four seizure detection algorithms (based on principal eigenvalue [EI],(More)
