The capacity of striped patterns (square-wave gratings) to induce paroxysmal EEG activity in a group of pattern-sensitive epileptic patients is shown to depend on: 1. The spatial frequency of the pattern. The optimum spatial frequency lies between 1 and 4 cycles/degree in every patient tested. 2. The orientation of the pattern. Although, for the patient group as a whole, no one orientation is consistently more likely to induce paroxysmal activity than any other, the responses of individual… CONTINUE READING
