Persistent abnormality detected in the non-ictal electroencephalogram in primary generalised epilepsy
OBJECTIVES: Gamma oscillations (30–100 Hz gamma electroencephalographic (EEG) activity) correlate with high frequency synchronous rhythmic bursting in assemblies of cerebral neurons participating in aspects of consciousness. Previous studies in a kainic acid animal model of epilepsy revealed increased intensity of gamma rhythms in background EEG preceding epileptiform discharges, leading the authors to test for intensified gamma EEG in humans with epilepsy. METHODS: 64 channel cortical EEG...[Show more]
