About two-thirds of epilepsy patients who learn to control their slow cortical potential shifts (SCP) reduce their seizure rate, but the remaining third does not demonstrate clinical improvement. In the present study, this finding was replicated in a group of 27 patients with focal epilepsy. We found that patients who consistently produced larger negative SCP in all conditions during the first phase of treatment, showed no decrease in seizure frequency during the six-month follow-up, as… CONTINUE READING
