Liver cirrhosis is often accompanied by a spectrum of cognitive deficits, labelled hepatic encephalopathy (HE). The precise specification of cognitive impairment associated with HE has not been yet elucidated. The aim of this study was an attempt to examine cortical function in cirrhotic patients using EEG event-related potentials during a demanding task… CONTINUE READING
