Abstract

We compared routine EEG and sleep records in 132 patients with definite or probable epilepsy. The incidence of activation was found to increase up to 58% among patients with epilepsy and normal routine records; half the epileptic subjects with abnormal routine EEG had qualitatively or quantitatively more abnormal records after sleep deprivation, particularly in severe partial epilepsies. Our data confirm the utility of sleep deprivation as an activating EEG method in studies of epileptic patients.
