Özet

Objectives: Sleep has profound effects on epilepsy. It may alter the occurrence of interictal discharges (IEDs) and seizures. Vice versa, an active epilepsy changes sleep. Sleep spindles are typically associated with an increase of IEDs. We examined whether seizures change the number and power of spindles preceding nightly seizures.
