Brain Wave Abnormalities Tied to Symptom Severity, Age at Seizure Onset

Stronger brain wave abnormalities are significantly associated with more severe cognitive, motor, and communication symptoms and earlier seizure onset in children and adolescents with Angelman syndrome (AS), a study shows. These findings support brain activity abnormalities as a core Angelman feature, and they support the use of electroencephalography (EEG) as a biomarker in clinical trials of potential Angelman therapies. EEG is a non-invasive method used to measure electrical activity in the brain that provides readouts in…
