Abstract

Abstract: The article content results of estimation of Blink Reflex and evoked brain potentials (cognitive and visual) parameters changes on epilepsy patients, which treated by anticonvulsants and repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation course (rTMS). Data of Blink Reflex parameters on dependence from epileptic process activity were given. Received data define some aspects of epilepsy pathogenesis and widen conception about long-lasting processes of brain reaction after short rTMS course.
