Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The authors review the clinical and electroencephalographic features of electrical status epilepticus during slow sleep (ESES) in children. The major points of debate regard the nosology and diagnosis of ESES. The relationship between ESES and the neuropsychological impairment is emphasized. It is concluded that ESES is a separate electro-clinical entity which deserves individual categorization.
