Hi all

Does anyone know of a frequency range which is known to trigger seizures?  I know there was a proposal by a European group on audio seizures and frequencies in 2008 but don't know if anything came of that.  I have heard that repetitive sounds and/or low or high frequencies might trigger epilepsy, but haven't seen anything definitive.

I'd really appreciate it if anyone has information on this for guidance.
