Brain development in benign epilepsy with centrotemporal spikes and cognition: is there a link?

Takeaway

  • Children with benign epilepsy with centrotemporal spikes (BECTS) have a developmental configuration of their brain volume network similar to control children but have higher global clustering and efficiency that is characteristic of higher‐than‐normal development.

Why this matters

  • Graph theory (GT) measures calculated on baseline morphological networks could be useful as cognitive biomarker in BECTS, particularly for 2‐year neuropsychological outcomes.
