Diagnostic methods and treatment options for focal cortical dysplasia
Our inability to adequately treat many patients with refractory epilepsy caused by focal cortical dysplasia (FCD), surgical inaccessibility and failures are significant clinical drawbacks. TheExpand

Long‐term amygdalohippocampal stimulation for refractory temporal lobe epilepsy
Short‐term deep brain stimulation (DBS) recently has been shown to be efficacious in refractory temporal lobe epilepsy. We (1) evaluated long‐term DBS in medial temporal lobe structures in patientsExpand

Functional connectivity of dissociation in patients with psychogenic non-epileptic seizures
Introduction Psychogenic non-epileptic seizures (PNES) resemble epileptic seizures, but lack epileptiform brain activity. Instead, the cause is assumed to be psychogenic. An abnormal coping strategyExpand

MRI language dominance assessment in epilepsy patients at 1.0 T: region of interest analysis and comparison with intracarotid amytal testing
The primary goal of this study was to test the reliability of presurgical language lateralization in epilepsy patients with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) with a 1.0-T MR scanner usingExpand

Developing a comprehensive presurgical functional MRI protocol for patients with intractable temporal lobe epilepsy: a pilot study
Our aim was to put together and test a comprehensive functional MRI (fMRI) protocol which could compete with the intracarotid amytal (IAT) or Wada test for the localisation of language and memoryExpand

Seizures in the intrahippocampal kainic acid epilepsy model: characterization using long‐term video‐EEG monitoring in the rat
Objective –  Intrahippocampal injection of kainic acid (KA) in rats evokes a status epilepticus (SE) and leads to spontaneous seizures. However to date, precise electroencephalographic (EEG) andExpand

Suppression of hippocampal epileptic seizures in the kainate rat by Poisson distributed stimulation
Purpose:  Hippocampal deep brain stimulation (DBS) is an experimental therapy for patients with pharmacoresistant temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE). Despite the successful clinical application of DBS, theExpand
