Changes in EEG synchronization, i.e., spatio-temporal correlation, with amygdala-hippocampal stimulation were studied in patients with temporal lobe epilepsy. Synchronization was evaluated for high frequency, 130 Hz, pseudo-monophasic or biphasic charge-balanced pulses. Desynchronization was most frequently induced by stimulation. There was no correlation(More)
Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) is a non-invasive method for brain stimulation. Group-studies applying rTMS in epilepsy patients aiming to decrease epileptic spike- or seizure-frequency have led to inconsistent results. Here we studied whether therapeutic trains of rTMS have detectable effects on individual spike pattern and/or frequency(More)
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) of different nuclei is being evaluated as a treatment for epilepsy. While encouraging results have been reported, the effects of changes in stimulation parameters have been poorly studied. Here the effects of changes of pulse waveform in high frequency DBS (130 Hz) of the amygdala-hippocampal complex (AH) are presented. These(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The monitoring of interictal epileptiform discharge rates (IEDRs) all along anterior temporal lobe resections (ATLRs) has never been reported. Here the effect of ATLR on continuous IEDR monitoring is described. METHODS IEDRs computed automatically during entire interventions were recorded in 34 patients (38.2%, 13/34 depth; 61.8%, 21/34(More)
OBJECTIVE We investigated the contribution of electrocortical stimulation (ECS), induced high gamma electrocorticography (hgECoG) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) for the localization of somatosensory and language cortex. METHODS 23 Epileptic patients with subdural electrodes underwent a protocol of somatosensory stimulation and/or an(More)
This study investigates the spatiotemporal dynamics associated with conscious and non-conscious processing of naked and dressed human bodies. To this effect, stimuli of naked men and women with visible primary sexual characteristics, as well as dressed bodies, were presented to 20 heterosexual male and female participants while acquiring high resolution EEG(More)
