Accurate seizure prediction possible for more people with epilepsy

Accurate seizure prediction is vital for people whose epilepsy remains uncontrolled. Thanks to the crowdsourcing of 10,000 algorithms worldwide researchers at the University of Melbourne are confident that clinically relevant epileptic seizure prediction is possible in a wider range of patients than previously thought.

“Our evaluation revealed on average a 90 per cent improvement in seizure prediction performance, compared to previous results,” Dr Kuhlmann, from the University of Melbourne said.

Furthermore, their findings support the use of patient-specific algorithms as their results showed different algorithms performed best for different patients.
