Is MEG source analysis able to precisely locate the primary focal epileptic activity? 22 patients with pharmacoresistant temporal lobe epilepsy were recorded during presurgical evaluation simultaneously with multichannel MEG/EEG and invasive (subdural) electrodes to evaluate the increase of information gained by MEG concerning the localization of focal(More)
Ictal and interictal epileptic activity was recorded for the first time by multichannel magnetoencephalography (MEG) in three patients with partial epilepsy. Pre- and intra-operative localization of the epileptogenic region was compared. The interictal epileptic activity was localized at the same region of the temporal or frontal lobe as the ictal activity.(More)
Initial results of magnetic source localization by means of multichannel recording using a 10 or a 31 channel system are reported. Simultaneous magnetoencephalographic (MEG) and electroencephalographic (EEG) (scalp, sphenoidal and foramen oval) recording, as well as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with a fixed head position, permits the projection of brain(More)
In order to localize epileptogenic electrophysiological sources, a multichannel MEG system was used in 3 patients with partial epilepsy during presurgical evaluation. MEG and EEG (including scalp, sphenoidal and intracranial foramen ovale electrodes) were recorded simultaneously during a period of intensive video-EEG monitoring in order to observe single(More)
The authors designed a multichannel system for noninvasive measurement of the extremely weak magnetic fields generated by the brain and the heart. It uses a flat array of 37 superconducting magnetic field-sensing coils connected to sophisticated superconducting quantum interference devices. To prevent interference from external electromagnetic fields, the(More)
A combined correlation analysis of temporal and spatial patterns in a biomagnetic multichannel recording is proposed to extract patterns of transient, randomly repetitive physiological events from biomagnetic data sets with a low signal-to-noise ratio. This method is especially sensitive in the differentiation of signals from different source propagation(More)
Electrical activity can be localized by magnetocardiography (MCG) non-invasively. In this study a 37-SQUID (Super Conducting Quantum Interference Device) sensor multi-channel system (KRENIKON) was used to assess the potential of magnetocardiography to localize accessory pathways with a multichannel system. Seven WPW patients were studied by means of(More)
It was our purpose to assess the clinical relevance of noninvasive magnetocardiographic localization of accessory pathways. Nine patients with Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome were studied. For all of them the site of the accessory pathway was known from invasive catheter mapping. A 37-SQUID (superconducting quantum interference device) sensor(More)
Two patients with complex partial epilepsy and tumour of the temporal lobe scheduled for gamma knife radiosurgery were evaluated pre- and postoperatively by multichannel magnetoencephalography (MEG). Centers of epileptic dipole activity found preoperatively disappeared after the focal irradiation as did the epileptic seizures. Thus, to combine stereotactic(More)
