In response to a somatosensory stimulus, two cortical centers in each hemisphere produce neural mass activity large enough to be detected with electric (EEG) or magnetic (MEG) measurements. Both the primary somatosensory cortex (S-I), located in the postcentral sulcus and in the depths of the central sulcus, as well as the secondary somatic sensory cortex(More)
The components of the biomagnetic multichannel system Krenikon are described. The combination of biomagnetically yielded localizations with anatomic images gained from MR or CT is discussed as well as the enhancement of the signal-to-noise ratio by using a correlation technique. The overall localization accuracy is tested with technical phantoms. With(More)
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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
