ECoG high-gamma modulation versus electrical stimulation for presurgical language mapping

Publication date: February 2018Source:Epilepsy & Behavior, Volume 79
Author(s): Ravindra Arya, Paul S. Horn, Nathan E. Crone

Objective
This meta-analysis compared diagnostic validity of electrocorticographic (ECoG) high-γ modulation (HGM) with electrical stimulation mapping (ESM) for presurgical language localization.
Methods
From a structured literature search, studies with electrode level data comparing ECoG HGM and ESM for language localization were included in the meta-analysis. Outcomes included ...

Community-based rehabilitation offers cost-effective epilepsy treatment in rural Guinea-Bissau

Publication date: February 2018Source:Epilepsy & Behavior, Volume 79
Author(s): Eric van Diessen, Frank van der Maas, Vladimir Cabral, Willem M. Otte
Treatment of epilepsy in low-income countries is a challenge considering the lack of resources, availability of antiepileptic drugs, and cultural beliefs. We used a community-based rehabilitation (CBR) service for the detection, monitoring, and treatment of epilepsy. A local network of trained community ...

Intraindividual variability in attentional vigilance in children with epilepsy

Publication date: February 2018Source:Epilepsy & Behavior, Volume 79
Author(s): Kyle Srnka, Michael Seidenberg, Bruce Hermann, Jana Jones
Attentional vigilance, the ability to maintain focus over time, is frequently impaired in childhood epilepsy. Typically, indices of Omissions (failure to detect a target) and Commissions (responding to a nontarget) are considered primary indices of attentional vigilance. Recently, the concept of intraindividual variability (IIV) has been ...
