Equations are derived for the electric potentials [electroencephalogram (EEG)] produced by dipolar sources in a multiregion bicentric-spheres volume-conductor head model. Being the equations valid for an arbitrary number of regions, our proposal is a generalization of many spherical models presented so far in literature, each of those regarded as a(More)
EEG-based source localization techniques use scalp-potential data to estimate the location of underlying neural activity. EEG source location reconstruction requires the assumption of a source model and the assumption of a conductive head model. Brain lesions can present conductivity values that are dramatically different from those of surrounding normal(More)
Bioelectrical phenomena spread within the whole body (the conductor medium) independently of electrical source position within the body. However, under certain circumstances, it is possible to limit the volume within which the study can be done. Given its high resistivity, the skull limits the spread of bioelectrical currents due to brain sources and it(More)
Accurate EEG source reconstruction needs an appropriate volume conductor head model including, in the presence of a morphological brain lesion, a lesion compartment. Lesion electrical properties (conductivity) can not be measured in vivo and need to be retrieved from literature on the base of lesion type identification, performed by means of diagnostic(More)
Source localization techniques based on electroencephalography (EEG) use scalp potential data to infer the location of brain neural activity. A volume conductor model describing the electrical properties of the human head is needed. Lesions have conductivity considerably different from that of normal brain and should be included in the head model because(More)
