From: Changes in background electroencephalographic activity in benign childhood epilepsy with centrotemporal spikes after oxcarbazepine treatment: a standardized low-resolution brain electromagnetic tomography (sLORETA) study

  N = 18
Lateralization of spikes at diagnosis  
 left predominant 8 (44.4%)
 right predominant 4 (22.2%)
 bilateral 6 (33.3%)
Location of maximal negativity at diagnosis
 central 11 (61.1%)
 temporal 6 (33.3%)
 frontal 1 (6.6%)
Spike index (discharge/min) during AED treatment*
 untreated condition 10.6 ± 13.2 (mean ± SD)
 treated condition 9.3 ± 15.1 (mean ± SD)
  1. *Paired sample t-test showed no significant difference between the two conditions (P > 0.05)
  2. EEG electroencephalography
