Introduction

    Epilepsy is the name of a brain disorder characterized predominantly by recurrent and unpredictable interruptions of normal brain function, called epileptic seizures. According to the characteristics of seizures and clinical manifestations, it can be divided into focal epilepsy and generalized epilepsy. The etiology of epilepsy is complex and the pathological mechanism is unclear. Over the past two decades , the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology and electroencephalogram (EEG) have been widely used to investigate epilepsy. An increasing number of evidence has been presented to reveal the potential illness mechanism.

     Using multimodel imaging techniques, our research group has done a lot of work to study epilepsy and obtained many excellent achievements. Our work focused on the localization of epileptic foci, the regulation effects of basal ganglia on epileptic activity and the alterations of resting-state brain networks in patients with epilepsy. Accumulated results help us to have a more comprehensive understanding about epilepsy.
