Neural network activity in hyperkinetic seizures

Takeaway

  • Type I, II and III hyperkinetic seizures (HKS) are associated with unique patterns of hyperperfusion.

Why this matters

  • The exact localization of the networks involved in HKS is not well understood; however, a role for the subcortical brain structures is postulated.

  • Subcortical structures are not typically implanted during invasive encephalography (EEG); however, functional imaging could be used to characterize neural network activation in HKS.
