In spite of more than 15 antiepileptic drugs employing different modes of action to suppress or prevent seizures, with frequent mild-to-severe adverse effects, around ~30% of patients, particularly suffering from focal epilepsy
, remain resistant to drug treatment .
Recent work has demonstrated the potential of network metrics derived from rs-fMRI to provide clinically meaningful markers of cognitive function in adults [5, 6], in healthy children , and in children with focal epilepsy
In this paper, we propose a novel workflow for depicting seizure occurrence in refractory focal epilepsy
. This network-based workflow detects the seizure occurrence and monitors the total seizure course, which is the first work aiming at monitoring alteration of network reorganizations throughout seizures as far as we know.
The means and standard deviations for RCFT Immediate Recall according to sex and lateralization of focal epilepsy
are shown in Table 2.
We also report two focal epilepsy
patients with insular involvement, followed in the Department of Neurology.
