Revolutionary New Procedure For Epilepsy Diagnosis Unlocked By Research

  • Current diagnosis practices typically observe electrical activities associated with seizures in a clinical environment
  • By using computer algorithms and mathematical models, the research team was able to develop systems to analyse EEG recordings gathered while the patient is at rest, and reveal subtle differences in dynamic network properties that enhance susceptibility to seizures.
  • In their most recent study, researchers have introduced the concept of “Brain Network Ictogenecity” (or BNI) as a probabilistic measure for a given network to generate seizures.
