OBJECTIVE To investigate whether functional brain networks of epilepsy patients treated with antiepileptic medication differ from networks of healthy controls even during the seizure-free interval. METHODS We applied different rules to construct binary and weighted networks from EEG and MEG data recorded under a resting-state eyes-open and eyes-closed(More)
We evaluate the capability of reconstructing Fokker-Planck equations for an improved characterization of electroencephalographic (EEG) recordings from epilepsy patients. We derive stochastic qualifiers of brain dynamics that are based on specific characteristics of the Kramers-Moyal coefficients estimated from the EEG. Analyzing long-lasting multichannel(More)
SUMMARY Although there are numerous studies exploring basic neuronal mechanisms that are likely to be associated with seizures, to date no definite information is available as to how, when, or why a seizure occurs in humans. The fact that seizures occur without warning in the majority of cases is one of the most disabling aspects of epilepsy. If it were(More)
We propose a data-driven approach to measure interdependences between dissipative dynamical systems under the influence of noise. We estimate drift and diffusion coefficients of a Fokker-Planck equation and derive measures that allow one to quantify the asymmetry in coupling in a fully automated and computationally inexpensive and simple way. Our approach(More)
