OBJECTIVE Spike and slow waves consist of a "spike" including high-frequency oscillations (HFOs), which are linked to epileptogenicity and a "post-spike slow wave (PSS)" related to inhibitory activity. The aim of this study was to elucidate the spatiotemporal relationship between spike-related HFOs and PSS in patients with focal cortical dysplasia (FCD)(More)
BACKGROUND Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by impairments in social cognition. The biological basis of deficits in social cognition in ASD, and their difficulty in processing emotional face information in particular, remains unclear. Atypical communication within and between brain regions has been reported in(More)
Pathological high frequency oscillations (pHFOs) have been proposed to be robust markers of epileptic cortex. Oscillatory activity below this frequency range has been shown to be modulated by phase of lower frequency oscillations. Here, we tested the hypothesis that dynamic cross-frequency interactions involving pHFOs are concentrated within the(More)
OBJECTIVE We introduce and describe the functions of moviEEG (Multiple Overlay Visualizations for Intracranial ElectroEncephaloGraphy), a novel MATLAB-based toolbox for spatiotemporal mapping of network synchronization dynamics in intracranial electroencephalography (iEEG) data. METHODS The toolbox integrates visualizations of inter-electrode(More)
In focal epilepsy, power imbalance between spike-related high frequency oscillations (HFOs) with 80-200 Hz and post-spike slow waves (PSS) in the spike and slow waves selectively occurs within the seizure onset zone (SOZ) before seizure onset. The aim of this study was to elucidate when this preictal power imbalance could occur in the SOZ. We analyzed(More)
OBJECTIVE A post-spike slow wave (PSS) as part of a spike and slow wave is presumably related to inhibition of epileptic activity. In this study, we evaluated dynamic changes of PSS power toward seizure onset in patients with focal cortical dysplasia (FCD) type II. METHODS We collected data from 10 pediatric patients with FCD type II, who underwent(More)
