A library of quantitative markers of seizure severity

Purpose: Understanding fluctuations of seizure severity within individuals is important for defin-ing treatment outcomes and response to therapy, as well as developing novel treatments for epilepsy.



Seizure pathways and seizure durations can vary independently within individual patients with focal epilepsy

This paper presents a meta-modelling architecture that automates the very laborious and therefore expensive and therefore time-heavy and expensive and expensive process of manually cataloging and cataloging the cells of the immune system.

Interictal spikes and epileptic seizures: their relationship and underlying rhythmicity.

It is found that spike rate was significantly altered prior to seizure in 9 out of 15 subjects and the pre-ictal decrease in spike rate is not consistent with spikes promoting seizures, however, the fact that spikes and seizures demonstrate similar probability distributions suggests they are not wholly independent processes.

Intracranial EEG fluctuates over months after implanting electrodes in human brain

The findings suggest that conclusions drawn from iEEG, both clinically and for research, should account for spatiotemporal signal variability and that properly assessing the i EEG in patients, depending upon the application, may require extended monitoring.

Functional brain networks of patients with epilepsy exhibit pronounced multiscale periodicities, which correlate with seizure onset

The results reveal that these networks vary over time in a periodic fashion, exhibiting multiple peaks at periods ranging between 1 and 24 hr, which implies that more robust seizure detection and prediction can be achieved if longer term underlying functional brain network periodic variations are taken into account.

Long-term variability of global statistical properties of epileptic brain networks.

This work constructs binary functional networks from long-term, multichannel electroencephalographic data recorded from 13 epilepsy patients, and the average shortest path length and the clustering coefficient serve as global statistical network characteristics.

Brain State Is a Major Factor in Preseizure Hippocampal Network Activity and Influences Success of Seizure Intervention

The results indicate that consideration of behavioral brain state preceding a seizure is important for the appropriate interpretation of network dynamics leading up to a seizure and for designing effective seizure intervention, and that seizure prediction and intervention will be more successful if tailored for the specific brain states from which seizures emerge.

Variability in the location of high frequency oscillations during prolonged intracranial EEG recordings

There is much variability in the location of HFOs offering a note of caution toward using HFO locations from short recordings as a guide for surgery, indicating that robust HFO interpretation requires prolonged analysis in context with other clinical data, rather than isolated review of short data segments.

Cycles in epilepsy

The authors provide an overview of the evidence for daily, multi-day and yearly cycles in epileptic brain activity and discusses advances in the understanding of the mechanisms underlying these cycles and the potential clinical applications of this knowledge.

Seizure pathways: A model-based investigation

A model inversion algorithm for electrocorticography data recorded during epileptic seizures provides a demonstration that the hidden connectivity parameters of a neural mass model can be dynamically inferred from data.
