The objectives of this study were to evaluate the haemodynamic response of the cerebral cortex and thalamus during generalized spike and wave or polyspike and wave (GSW) bursts in patients with idiopathic generalized epilepsy (IGE). The haemodynamic response is measured by fMRI [blood oxygenation level-dependent (BOLD) effect]. We used combined EEG-functional MRI, a method that allows the unambiguous measurement of the BOLD effect during bursts, compared with measurements during the inter-burst… CONTINUE READING
