Ambulatory EEG Usefulness in Epilepsy Management.

J Clin Neurophysiol 2021 Mar;38(2):101-111

Department of Neurology, Mayo Clinic, Jacksonville, Florida, U.S.A.

Summary: Long-term video-EEG monitoring has been the gold standard for diagnosis of epileptic and nonepileptic events. Medication changes, safety, and a lack of recording EEG in one's habitual environment may interfere with diagnostic representation and subsequently affect management. Some spells defy standard EEG because of ultradian and circadian times of occurrence, manifest nocturnal expression of epileptiform activity, and require classification for clarifying diagnostic input to identify optimal treatment.

Elucidation of EEG Characteristics of Fuzzy Reasoning-Based Heuristic BCI and Its Application to Patient With Brain Infarction.

Front Neurorobot 2020 25;14:607706. Epub 2021 Jan 25.

Department of Human System Interaction, School of Science and Technology, Kwansei Gakuin University, Sanda, Japan.

Non-invasive brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) based on common electroencephalography (EEG) are limited to specific instrumentation sites and frequency bands. These BCI induce certain targeted electroencephalographic features of cognitive tasks, identify them, and determine BCI's performance, and use machine-learning to extract these electroencephalographic features, which makes them enormously time-consuming. In addition, there is a problem in which the neurorehabilitation using BCI cannot receive ambulatory and immediate rehabilitation training. Read More

Role of Video-EEG in Children.

Indian J Pediatr 2021 Jan 4. Epub 2021 Jan 4.

Department of Neurology and Epileptology, Advanced Center for Epilepsy, Gleneagles Global Health City, Perumbakkam, Chennai, 600100, India.

Routine electroencephalogram (EEG) has many limitations, especially the inability to capture reported habitual events in question. A prolonged EEG with synchronized video (video-EEG) overcomes some of these limitations by improving the sensitivity, specificity and the diagnostic yield by attempting to record the habitual events when they are frequent and when indicated. Video-EEG is employed commonly for the diagnosis and classification of epilepsy/epilepsy syndromes, to distinguish between seizures and seizures mimickers, for pre-surgical evaluation and in the management of critically ill children.
