    • Emergence of Stable Functional Networks in Long-Term Human Electroencephalography 

      Chu, Catherine Jean; Kramer, Mark R.; Pathmanathan, Jay Sriram; Bianchi, Matt Travis; Westover, Michael Brandon; Wizon, L.; Cash, Sydney S. (Society for Neuroscience, 2012)
      Functional connectivity networks have become a central focus in neuroscience because they reveal key higher-dimensional features of normal and abnormal nervous system physiology. Functional networks reflect activity-based ...
    • Physiological consequences of abnormal connectivity in a developmental epilepsy 

      Shafi, Mouhsin; Vernet, Marine; Klooster, Debby; Chu, Catherine Jean; Boric, Katica; Barnard, Mollie E.; Romatoski, Kelsey; Westover, Michael Brandon; Christodoulou, Joanna A.; Gabrieli, John D. E.; Whitfield-Gabrieli, Susan; Pascual-Leone, Alvaro; Chang, Bernard Shaw-Farn (Wiley-Blackwell, 2015)
      Objective: Many forms of epilepsy are associated with aberrant neuronal connections, but the relationship between such pathological connectivity and the underlying physiological predisposition to seizures is unclear. We ...
    • The probability of seizures during EEG monitoring in critically ill adults 

      Westover, Michael Brandon; Shafi, Mouhsin; Bianchi, Matt Travis; Moura, Lidia M.V.R.; O’Rourke, Deirdre; Rosenthal, Eric Scott; Chu, Catherine Jean; Donovan, Samantha; Hoch, Daniel B.; Kilbride, Ronan D.; Cole, Andrew James; Cash, Sydney S. (Elsevier BV, 2015)
      Objective: To characterize the risk for seizures over time in relation to EEG findings in hospitalized adults undergoing continuous EEG monitoring (cEEG). Methods: Retrospective analysis of cEEG data and medical records ...
    • Should a Sentinel Node Biopsy Be Performed in Patients with High-Risk Breast Cancer? 

      Westover, Kenneth Dale; Westover, Michael Brandon; Winer, Eric Paul; Richardson, Andrea Lynn; Iglehart, James Dirk; Punglia, Rinaa S. (SAGE-Hindawi Access to Research, 2011)
      A negative sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy spares many breast cancer patients the complications associated with lymph node irradiation or additional surgery. However, patients at high risk for nodal involvement based on ...
    • Significance Testing as Perverse Probabilistic Reasoning 

      Westover, Michael Brandon; Westover, Kenneth Dale; Bianchi, Matt Travis (BioMed Central, 2011)
      Truth claims in the medical literature rely heavily on statistical significance testing. Unfortunately, most physicians misunderstand the underlying probabilistic logic of significance tests and consequently often misinterpret ...
    • The standardization debate: A conflation trap in critical care electroencephalography 

      Ng, Marcus C.; Gaspard, Nicolas; Cole, Andrew James; Hoch, Daniel B.; Cash, Sydney S.; Bianchi, Matt Travis; O’Rourke, Deirdre A.; Rosenthal, Eric Scott; Chu, Catherine Jean; Westover, Michael Brandon (Elsevier BV, 2015)
      Purpose: Persistent uncertainty over the clinical significance of various pathological continuous electroencephalography (cEEG) findings in the intensive care unit (ICU) has prompted efforts to standardize ICU cEEG terminology ...
