We determined the interrelations of chronological age, age at seizure onset, duration of seizure disorder, cognitive functioning (IQ), scales of activities of daily living, depressive mood disorder and measures of health-related quality of life (HRQOL). Furthermore, we investigated the association of the laterality of seizure onset zone and absence/presence(More)
We studied the functional organization of the interictal spike complex in 30 patients with mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE) using combined magnetoencephalography (MEG)/electroencephalography (EEG) recordings. Spikes could be recorded in 14 patients (47%) during the 2- to 3-h MEG/EEG recording session. The MEG and EEG spikes were subjected to separate(More)
OBJECTIVE This research sought to identify a well-defined pre-motor potential, the Bereitschaftspotential (BP), as a manifestation of cortical contribution to the pre-motor planning of volitional swallowing. METHODS EEG data were collected from 20 research participants during volitional execution of swallowing and finger movement tasks. A5 second(More)
Although unilateral lesion studies concerning the opercular part of primary motor cortex report clinically severe motor deficits (e.g. anarthria, masticatory paralysis), functional lateralization of this area has not yet been addressed in neuroimaging studies. Using BOLD-FMRI, this study provides the first quantitative evaluation of a possible cortical(More)
