In this primer, we give a review of the inverse problem for EEG source localization. This is intended for the researchers new in the field to get insight in the state-of-the-art techniques used to find approximate solutions of the brain sources giving rise to a scalp potential recording. Furthermore, a review of the performance results of the different(More)
The time-varying microstructure of sleep EEG spindles may have clinical significance in dementia studies. In this work, the sleep spindle is modeled as an AM-FM signal and parameterized in terms of six parameters, three quantifying the instantaneous envelope (IE) and three quantifying the instantaneous frequency (IF) of the spindle model. The IE and IF(More)
Epilepsy is one of the most common brain disorders and may result in brain dysfunction and cognitive disturbances. Epileptic seizures usually begin in childhood without being accommodated by brain damage and are tolerated by drugs that produce no brain dysfunction. In this study, cognitive function is evaluated in children with mild epileptic seizures(More)
The time-varying microstructure of sleep spindles may have clinical significance and can be quantified and modeled with a number of techniques. In this paper, sleep spindles were regarded as AM-FM signals modeled by six parameters. The instantaneous envelope (IE) and instantaneous frequency (IF) waveforms were estimated using four different methods, namely(More)
Epilepsy is one of the most common brain disorders and may result in brain dysfunction and cognitive disturbances. Epileptic seizures usually begin in childhood without being accommodated by brain damage and many drugs produce no brain dysfunction. In this study cognitive function in mild epilepsy cases is evaluated where children with seizures are compared(More)
The time-varying microstructure of sleep EEG spindles may have clinical significance in dementia studies and can be quantified with a number of techniques. In this paper, real and simulated sleep spindles were regarded as AM/FM signals modeled by six parameters that define the instantaneous envelope (IE) and instantaneous frequency (IF) waveforms for a(More)
PURPOSE Distinguishing nonconvulsive status epilepticus (NCSE) from some nonepileptic encephalopathies is a challenging problem. In many situations, NCSE and nonepileptic encephalopathies are indistinguishable by clinical symptoms and can produce very similar electroencephalography (EEG) patterns. Misdiagnosis or delay to diagnosis of NCSE may increase the(More)
Absence seizures are characterized by sudden loss of consciousness and interruption of ongoing motor activities for a brief period of time lasting few to several seconds and up to half a minute. Due to their brevity and subtle clinical manifestations absence seizures are easily missed by inexperienced observers. Accurate evaluation of their high frequency(More)
