A combined biomarker for epileptogenic tissue

A classical marker of epileptogenic tissues is the interictal epileptiform discharge. Recently, is has been proposed to use high frequency oscillations as a more specific marker. We have shown in our recent publication in Annals of Neurology by Roehri and colleagues that a promising strategy is in fact to combine the two markers in order to improve both sensitivity and specificity.  https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29244226  ...
