We report postictal heart rate oscillations in a heterogeneous group of patients with partial epilepsy. This pattern is marked by the appearance of transient but prominent low-frequency heart rate oscillations (0.01 to 0.1 Hz) immediately after 5 of 11 seizures recorded in 5 patients. This finding may be a marker of neuroautonomic instability and, therefore, may have implications for understanding perturbations of heart rate control associated with partial seizures.
