A study in Nature Communications found the occurrence of seizures can be predicted in patients with epilepsy by monitoring the monthly cycles of their brain activity using NeuroPace's implantable responsive neurostimulator system, which uses electrical brain stimulation to stop seizures. Researchers assessed brain activity in 37 patients who received the device over a significantly longer period of time than previous studies and were able to track weekly and monthly brain activity patterns and map when seizure risk was the highest.
