Event-related Potentials (ERPs) have been studied for more than 40 years as a window into higher cortical function. Although ERPs have long been investigated in the field of epilepsy, their complete analysis has had to await the development of powerful computer technology. As this technology comes online, increasing the clinical application of ERPS to epilepsy can be expected. Eventually, ERPs may contribute to brain computer interfaces through the marriage of computer technology and nanotechnology.
This book covers all aspects of ERPs related to epilepsy, including ERPs in the evaluation of epileptic pathophysiology, higher cortical functions, functional deficits, other neuroimaging techniques, epilepsy surgery, antiepileptic drugs, and developmental aspects in children.
Section I:
ERPs and cortical functions
ERP study in epilepsy:
introductory remarks
Brain states measured as the P3
Inhibitory frontal lobe function and ERPs
Visual ERPs and cortical function
ERPs and cognitive dysfunction: implication of TWI in clinical application of MMN
Auditory and visual mismatch negativity (MMN) in children with typical
and delayed development
Section II:
ERPs and source imaging
Considerations in source estimation
of the P3 with epilepsy
MEG in the study of higher cortical functions
Section III:
Higher cortical function and epilepsy
Memory and epilepsy
From sensation to perception:
ERP studies in human auditory cortex
Motor control and epilepsy: functional restoration after surgical treatment
for intractable epilepsy
Language and epilepsy
Section IV:
Epilepsy surgery and ERPs
Intracranial ERPs in presurgical evaluation and basic research
Electrical micro-stimulation
of hippocampus as a presurgical examination to predict memory impairment after hippocampectomy
The cognitive event-related potentials
in the basal ganglia: invasive studies
Visual language processes
in basal temporal language area: invasive ERP study and beyond
Epilepsy surgery and ERPs: invasive study in epilepsy for motor function
Section V:
Various aspects of ERPs: techniques, brain rhythm and basic approach
Methodological aspects of ERP: integration approach from temporal
and spatial domain
Human sensorimotor functions:
mapping ERPs or brain rhythms?
