Methods for the detection of seizure bursts in epilepsy

In this study, Seer’s Pip Karoly, Dr. Dean Freestone, and Prof. Mark Cook explore seizure clusters and “bursts”.


Seizure clusters and “bursts” are of clinical importance. Clusters are reported to be a marker of antiepileptic drug resistance. Additionally, seizure clustering has been found to be associated with increased morbidity and mortality. However, there are no statistical methods described in the literature to delineate bursting phenomenon in epileptic seizures.
