Effect of interictal epileptiform discharges on EEG-based functional connectivity networks.

Summary of "Effect of interictal epileptiform discharges on EEG-based functional connectivity networks."

Functional connectivity networks (FCNs) based on interictal electroencephalography (EEG) can identify pathological brain networks associated with epilepsy. FCNs are altered by interictal epileptiform discharges (IEDs), but it is unknown whether this is due to the morphology of the IED or the underlying pathological activity. Therefore, we characterized the impact of IEDs on the FCN through simulations and EEG analysis.

fMRI functional connectivity as an indicator of interictal epileptic discharges.

To explore the relationship between functional connectivity and presence of interictal epileptic discharges (IEDs) in different brain regions in intracranial EEG (iEEG).

Interictal epileptiform discharges vary across age groups.

To investigate whether the occurrence and morphology of interictal epileptiform discharges (IEDs) in scalp-EEG change by age.

Human neocortical interictal epileptiform discharges are initiated by a low-voltage negative polarity wave.

In between seizures, the brain of a patient with epilepsy will generate isolated, sporadic discharges (interictal epileptiform discharges [IEDs]). IED identification enables clinicians to diagnose epi...

A novel method for extracting interictal epileptiform discharges in multi-channel MEG: Use of fractional type of blind source separation.

Visual inspection of interictal epileptiform discharges (IEDs) in multi-channel MEG requires a time-consuming evaluation process and often leads to inconsistent results due to variability of IED wavef...

Interictal epileptiform discharges on electroencephalography in children with methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) polymorphisms.

Process of classifying cells of the immune system based on structural and functional differences. The process is commonly used to analyze and sort T-lymphocytes into subsets based on CD antigens by the technique of flow cytometry.

A syndrome characterized by the onset of isolated language dysfunction in otherwise normal children (age of onset 4-7 years) and epileptiform discharges on ELECTROENCEPHALOGRAPHY. Seizures, including atypical absence (EPILEPSY, ABSENCE), complex partial (EPILEPSY, COMPLEX PARTIAL), and other types may occur. The electroencephalographic abnormalities and seizures tend to resolve by puberty. The language disorder may also resolve although some individuals are left with severe language dysfunction, including APHASIA and auditory AGNOSIA. (From Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, pp749-50; J Child Neurol 1997 Nov;12(8):489-495)

An effect usually, but not necessarily, beneficial that is attributable to an expectation that the regimen will have an effect, i.e., the effect is due to the power of suggestion.

A variant of epilepsy characterized by continuous focal jerking of a body part over a period of hours, days, or even years without spreading to other body regions. Contractions may be aggravated by movement and are reduced, but not abolished during sleep. ELECTROENCEPHALOGRAPHY demonstrates epileptiform (spike and wave) discharges over the hemisphere opposite to the affected limb in most instances. The repetitive movements may originate from the CEREBRAL CORTEX or from subcortical structures (e.g., BRAIN STEM; BASAL GANGLIA). This condition is associated with Russian Spring and Summer encephalitis (see ENCEPHALITIS, TICK BORNE); Rasmussen syndrome (see ENCEPHALITIS); MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS; DIABETES MELLITUS; BRAIN NEOPLASMS; and CEREBROVASCULAR DISORDERS.
