Transient high-frequency (100-500 Hz) oscillations of the local field potential have been studied extensively in human mesial temporal lobe. Previous studies report that both ripple (100-250 Hz) and fast ripple (250-500 Hz) oscillations are increased in the seizure-onset zone of patients with mesial temporal lobe epilepsy. Comparatively little is known,(More)
OBJECTIVE Recent studies indicate that pathologic high-frequency oscillations (HFOs) are signatures of epileptogenic brain. Automated tools are required to characterize these events. We present a new algorithm tuned to detect HFOs from 30 to 85 Hz, and validate it against human expert electroencephalographers. METHODS We randomly selected 28 3-min(More)
Localizing epileptic networks is a central challenge in guiding epilepsy surgery, deploying antiepileptic devices, and elucidating mechanisms underlying seizure generation. Recent work from our group and others suggests that high-frequency epileptic oscillations (HFEOs) arise from brain regions constituting epileptic networks, and may be important to(More)
Mutations in the X-linked aristaless-related homeobox gene (ARX) have been linked to structural brain anomalies as well as multiple neurocognitive deficits. The generation of Arx-deficient mice revealed several morphological anomalies, resembling those observed in patients and an interneuron migration defect but perinatal lethality precluded analyses of(More)
Correct outcome prediction after cardiac arrest in children may improve clinical decision making and family counseling. Investigators have used EEG to predict outcome with varying success, but a limiting issue is the potential lack of reproducibility of EEG interpretation. Therefore, the authors aimed to evaluate interobserver agreement using standardized(More)
— The application of feature selection techniques greatly reduces the computational cost of classifying high-dimensional data. Feature selection algorithms of varying performance and computational complexities have been studied previously. This paper compares the performance of classical sequential methods, a floating search method, and the " globally(More)
