INTRODUCTION The neuronal mechanisms of enduring seizure propensity and seizure precipitation in juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME) are not known. We investigated these issues, within the framework of the "network concept" of epilepsy. METHODS Design1: 19, unmedicated JME patients were compared with nineteen, age-, and sex-matched normal control persons(More)
AIM To investigate the effect of chronic VPA treatment of EEG functional connectivity in successfully treated idiopathic generalized epilepsy (IGE) patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS 19-channel waking, resting-state EEG records of 26 IGE patients were analyzed before treatment (IGE) and after the 90th day of treatment (VPA), in seizure-free condition. Three(More)
OBJECTIVE We tested the hypothesis that the cortical areas with abnormal local EEG synchronization are dissimilar in the three common idiopathic generalized epilepsy (IGE) phenotypes: IGE patients with absence seizures (ABS), juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME) and epilepsy with generalized tonic-clonic seizures exclusively (EGTCS). PATIENTS AND METHODS(More)
INTRODUCTION Benign rolandic epilepsy of childhood (BERS) is an epilepsy syndrome with presumably genetic-developmental etiology. The pathological basis of this syndrome is completely unknown. We postulated that a developmental abnormality presumably results in abnormal EEG background activity findings. PATIENTS AND METHODS 20 children with typical BERS(More)
PURPOSE To explore intrahemispheric, cortico-cortical EEG functional connectivity (EEGfC) in benign childhood epilepsy with rolandic spikes (BECTS). METHODS 21-channel EEG was recorded in 17 non-medicated BECTS children and 19 healthy controls. 180s of spike- and artifact-free activity was selected for EEGfC analysis. Correlation of Low Resolution(More)
BACKGROUND Contemporary neuroimaging methods disclosed structural and functional cerebral abnormalities in idiopathic generalized epilepsies (IGEs). However, individual electrical (EEG) abnormalities have not been evaluated yet in IGE patients. METHODS IGE patients were investigated in the drug-free condition and after 3-6 month of antiepileptic(More)
PURPOSE The neuronal mechanisms of remission of epilepsy are not known. Based on the principles of the "network theory of epilepsy" we postulated the existence of abnormal cortico-cortical interactions at the onset of epilepsy (Hypothesis-1), and postulated that remission is associated with the decrease or disappearance of the abnormal quantitative EEG(More)
