GCS Scores and Encephalopathy

Does anyone have any medical literature that will definitively provide and cite corresponding GCS scores that are used to provide evidence and support for ‘encephalopathy’. I know the clinical definition for encephalopathy, and I understand that GCS scores of 8 or so are commonly used for the condition of ‘coma’.  Can GCS scores be used with precision to diagnosis (and defend the diagnosis) of encephalopathy?  Thanks!
