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 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)
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)
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)
Although chronic vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) is an established treatment for medically-intractable childhood epilepsy, there is considerable heterogeneity in seizure response and little data are available to pre-operatively identify patients who may benefit from treatment. Since the therapeutic effect of VNS may be mediated by afferent projections to the(More)
In focal ictogenesis, gamma oscillations (30-70 Hz) recorded by electroencephalography (EEG) are related to the epileptiform synchronization of interneurons that links the seizure onset zone (SOZ) to the surrounding epileptogenic zone. We hypothesized that the synchronization of interneurons could be detected as changes in the regularity of gamma(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)
