- Changes in seizure rates [ Time Frame: 3 years ]Main Outcome Measure: The effect of exposure to the auditory stimulus on seizure frequency. Changes in seizure rates from baseline to treatment years were determined and statistically compared within the treatment and control groups, as well as between the groups to assess efficacy of treatment.
