hic investigations have been of striking importance because the depth of sleep can be determined exactly by this method.

Can sleep deprivation trigger a seizure? Yes, it can. Seizures are very sensitive to sleep patterns. If you have epilepsy, lack of "good sleep" makes most people more likely to have seizures. Some people have their first and only seizures after an "all-nighter" at college or after not sleeping well for long periods. It can even increase the intensity and length of seizures. Some forms of epilepsy are especially prone to sleep problems.

Sleep deprivation provokes seizures and epileptiform discharges in some people with epilepsy. The sleep (EEG) is useful in the diagnosis and localization of epilepsy, as new epileptic foci can appear in sleep and REM sleep may demonstrate the narrowest localization of the primary focus

EEG after sleep deprivation (SD-EEG) is widely used in many epilepsy centers as an important tool in the epilepsy diagnosis process. However, after more than 40 years of use, there are a number of issues which still need to be clarified concerning its features and role. In particular, the many scientific papers addressing its role in epilepsy diagnosis often differ remarkably from each other in terms of the type of patients assessed, their description and study design.

Nocturnal sleep and daytime somnolence in untreated patients with temporal lobe epilepsy: Changes after treatment with controlled release carbamazepine

Sleep deprivation, also known as insufficient sleep or sleeplessness, is the condition of not having enough sleep. It can be either chronic or acute and may vary widely in severity. A chronic sleep-restricted state adversely affects the brain and cognitive function. However, in a subset of cases sleep deprivation can, paradoxically, lead to increased energy and alertness and enhanced mood; although its long-term consequences have never been evaluated, it has even been used as a treatment for depression.

As such the journal will publish original papers relevant to epilepsy from any scientific discipline and also studies of a multidisciplinary nature.

Has anyone had a sleep deprivation test? What is it like? My seizures are still regular but I've been managing them by sleeping and avoiding stress so it's not been too bad. The visual seizures are still going strong. In my case I was told for the first not to go to bed at all. But the recent one was go to bed, wake at 2am then stay awake for a test at 9:30. It may well be that they have found the latter to be better as it is 30yrs since the first. Other than that it is like a normal EEG.

Research on sleep has been of special interest during the last decade for practical as well as theoretical reasons. Electroencephalographic investigations have been of striking importance because the depth of sleep can be determined exactly by this method. This extensively revised edition has been updated and two new chapters added. The neurophysiological basis of epileptic activity introduces the book, followed by studies on the influence of sleep on the epileptic animal Papio papio, and comprehensive details of automated methods of integrated sleep analysis. The activating effect of sleep in epilepsy in general as well as special EEG patterns (spike wave complexes, tonic patterns) and seizure types (Grand mal on awakening, tonic seizures, complex partial seizures, status epilepticus, epileptic encephalopathies, nocturnal paroxysmal dystonia) and the influence of antiepileptic drugs is discussed. Finally, sleep deprivation in general and its importance for the activation of epileptic activity is reported. Subsequent to this, the activation effect of sleep without and with sleep deprivation is compared.
