The neural oscillations or brain waves refer to repetitive neural activities in the central nerves system. It is believed that brain processes the information though converging and diverging of these neural oscillations. The neural oscillatory pattern changes during the development and it has been reported that follows a specific trend during a typical development. Nevertheless, it is largely unknown whether this pattern would be differentiable in neurodevelopmental disorders. In this study, we aimed to explore developmental pattern of changes in the typically developed children with the age matched epileptic children. Therefore, eyes-open resting state EEG of epileptic and healthy children were acquired. Subsequently, changes in power spectrum of clean segments of EEG activities (with no seizure and removed from artifacts) in two groups were statistically compared in the age children within the ranges of 6-9 and 9-12 years-old. The results only showed significantly lower activities at the superior frontal and central regions in the frequency range of 1-4 Hz in epileptic children. We hope this finding could help to pave the way for better understanding of epilepsy effect on the brain development.
