Analysis of EEG-ECG interaction dynamics revealed a significantly higher degree of association between brain and cardiac activity in double mutant mice compared to Kcna1-/- animals for several different measures, suggesting that Scn2a-null heterozygosity reduces SUDEP risk by altering neural control of the heart.
