Understanding human episodic memory in aspects of large-scale brain networks has become one of the central themes in neuroscience over the last decade. Traditionally, episodic memory was regarded as mostly relying on medial temporal lobe (MTL) structures. However, recent studies have suggested involvement of more widely distributed cortical network and the(More)
We aimed to evaluate the clinical value of gamma oscillations in MEG for intractable neocortical epilepsy patients with cortical dysplasia by comparing gamma and interictal spike events. A retrospective analysis of MEG recordings of 30 adult neocortical epilepsy patients was performed. Gamma (30-70 Hz) and interictal spike events were independently(More)
A question to be addressed in the present study is how different the eyes-closed (EC) and eyes-open (EO) resting states are across frequency bands in terms of efficiency and centrality of the brain functional network. We investigated both the global and nodal efficiency and betweenness centrality in the EC and EO resting states from 39 volunteers. Mutual(More)
It has been reported that patients with a single MEG spike cluster have better postoperative outcomes compared to patients with multiple clusters. However, the problem of identifying a genuine source in the multiple MEG spike clusters remains unsolved. The aim of this study was to determine the focus of the epileptic activity in a situation with multiple(More)
Few studies have included magnetoencephalography (MEG) when assessing the diagnostic value of presurgical modalities in a nonlesional epilepsy population. Here, we compare single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), positron emission tomography (PET), video-EEG (VEEG), and MEG, with intracranial EEG (iEEG) to determine the value of individual(More)
OBJECTIVE Electrophysiologic hubs within the large-scale functional networks in mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (mTLE) with hippocampal sclerosis (HS) have not been investigated. We hypothesized that mTLE with HS has different resting-state network hubs in their large-scale functional networks compared to the hubs in healthy controls (HC). We also(More)
The success of epilepsy surgery depends on delineation of the suspected epileptogenic zone. The gold standard to delineate it is to use the ictal onset zone from an electrocorticography (ECoG). Although interictal spikes are also associated with the epileptogenic zone, their clinical significance has been under-evaluated. The aim of this study was to(More)
It is not clear whether specific brain areas act as hubs in the eyes-closed (EC) resting state, which is an unconstrained state free from any passive or active tasks. Here, we used electrophysiological magnetoencephalography (MEG) signals to study functional cortical hubs in 88 participants. We identified several multispectral cortical hubs. Although(More)
PURPOSE Focal cortical dysplasia (FCD) is the second most common pathological entity in surgically treated neocortical focal epilepsy. Despite the recent increase of interest in network approaches derived from graph theory on epilepsy, resting state network analysis of the FCD brain has not been adequately investigated. In this study, we investigated the(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to devise an objective clustering method for magnetoencephalography (MEG) interictal spike sources, and to identify the prognostic value of the new clustering method in adult epilepsy patients with cortical dysplasia (CD). METHODS We retrospectively analyzed 25 adult patients with histologically proven CD, who underwent(More)
