Efficiency and safety of the author's method of wrist tapping as a personalized method of emergency self-help in focal epilepsy

Abstract

Currently, a search for a solution to the problem of drug-resistant epilepsy is being actively pursued. Along with personalized (including targeted) drug methods, personalized nondrug methods of treating drug-resistant epilepsy are being actively developed. Our previous studies have shown that the developed author's technique with an individual selection of the wrist tapping (WT) leads to an increase in the activity of the frontotemporal cortex, mainly of the right hemisphere, involved in emotional control, and a decrease in the fear of recurrence of focal epileptic seizures (FS) or transformation of FS into bilateral tonic-clonic seizures (BTCS). In addition, WT leads to a decrease in intrahemispheric coherence in the frontotemporal regions of the left hemisphere, which is a biomarker for reducing the risk of generalized epileptic activity.
