OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to estimate the effects of Vigabatrin (VGB) as add-on therapy on visual (VEP) and brain-stem (BAEP) evoked potentials. METHOD The investigation covered 100 epileptic patients from 8 to 18 years of age. The treatment included therapy with carbamazepine (CBZ) or valproate acid (VPA) using slow release formulations of(More)

P300 is a manifestation of activity in a limited capacity system "whose use in the service of different tasks is under relative control by instruction". It is accepted as an objective correlate of mental processing involved in the allocation of attentional resources when immediate memory is engaged. The aim of this study was to evaluate cognitive function(More)
INTRODUCTION Long latency auditory evoked potentials, especially P300, are a clinically relevant method for evaluation of the cognitive function.
