Intra-cranial electroencephalographic recordings are increasingly employed in mice because of the availability of genetically manipulated mouse models. Currently, dental acrylic and anchoring screws are used to cement implanted electrodes. This technique works well for adult animals but often encounters difficulty when employed in young mice because their(More)
PURPOSE Electrical stimulation of the anterior nucleus of the thalamus appears to be effective against seizures in animals and humans. As the optimal stimulation settings remain elusive, we studied the effects of different stimulation parameters against pilocarpine induced seizures and status epilepticus (SE). METHODS Adult rats had electrodes implanted(More)
GOAL We have previously demonstrated that the coherence of high-frequency oscillations (HFOs; 80-300 Hz) increased during extratemporal lobe seizures in a consistent and spatially focused electrode cluster. In this study, we have investigated the relationship between cohered HFO intracranial EEG (iEEG) activity with that of slower low-frequency oscillations(More)
OBJECTIVE High frequency oscillations (HFOs) have recently been recorded in epilepsy patients and proposed as possible novel biomarkers of epileptogenicity. Investigation of additional HFO characteristics that correlate with the clinical manifestation of seizures may yield additional insights for delineating epileptogenic regions. To that end, this study(More)

It is well accepted that insulin-induced hypoglycemia can result in seizures. However, the effects of the seizures, as well as possible treatment strategies, have yet to be elucidated, particularly in juvenile or insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM). Here we establish a model of diabetes in young rats, to examine the consequences of severe(More)
The administration of the anesthetic agents is known to alter the electroencephalogram (EEG) signal significantly with the brain being their primary target. In this study, we analyzed the EEG recorded from six ASA I/II patients undergoing a 1-2 hour surgery. The EEG was collected before and during induction, maintenance and recovery of anesthesia using the(More)
Treatment for epilepsy depends largely on seizure frequency reported by patients through their seizure diaries. However, patients may be unaware of some of their seizures, which may lead to incomplete diary data, impacting on appropriate treatment plans. The purpose of this study was to quantify awareness of seizures in patients admitted to an epilepsy(More)
