    Alterations of the electroencephalogram sub-bands amplitude during focal seizures in the pilocarpine model of epilepsy

    Introduction: Temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) is the most common and drug resistant epilepsy in adults. Due to behavioral, morphologic and electrographic similarities, pilocarpine model of epilepsy best resembles TLE. This study was aimed at determination of the changes in electroencephalogram (EEG) sub-bands amplitude during focal seizures in the pilocarpine model of epilepsy. Analysis of these changes might help detection of a pre-seizure state before an oncoming seizure. Methods: Rats were treated by scopolamine (1mg/kg, s.c) to prevent cholinergic effects. After 30 min, pilocarpine (380 mg/kg, i.p) was administered to induce status epilepticus (SE) and 2 hours after SE, diazepam (20 mg/kg,...

    Epileptic seizures are generated by an abnormal synchronization of neurons. Since epileptic seizures are unforeseeable for the patients, epileptic seizures detection is an interesting issue in epileptology, that novel approaches to understand the mechanism of epileptic seizures. In this study we analyzed invasive electroencephalogram (EEG) recordings in patients suffering from medically intractable focal epilepsy with a nonlinear method called, dissimilarity index. In order to detect epileptic seizures Bhattacharyya distance between trajectory matrix of reference window during an interval quite distant in time from any seizure and trajectory matrix of present window is employed to measure...

    Automatic detection of epileptic seizures can serve as a valuable clinical tool which involves a more objective and computationally efficient method for the analysis of EEG data in order to generate increasingly accurate and reliable results. Automatic seizure detection is also an important component of closed-loop responsive cortical stimulation systems. The goal of this study is to evaluate EEG-based features recently proposed for seizure detection to discover the optimum ones for a reliable seizure detection system. We extracted seizure detection features from intracranial EEG signals that were recorded during invasive pre-surgical epilepsy monitoring of people with drug resistant focal...
