Resting electroencephalography in temporal lobe epilepsy – a potential diagnostic tool?

  • In a study characterizing differences in electroencephalography activity between individuals with temporal lobe epilepsy and matched controls, robust topography of significant edges clustering was observed in regions relevant to temporal lobe epilepsy.
  • There was a significant correlation between centrality of entorhinal cortex in the transition matrix and overall long-term memory performance.
  • The authors concluded that there are significant differences in neuronal avalanche propagation patterns for people with temporal lobe epilepsy, even in the resting state. This suggests electroencephalography activity could be used as a potential diagnostic tool for temporal lobe epilepsy.
