The contribution of asymmetric skull thickness to the scalp potential amplitude was investigated numerically. The model consisted of four conductive layers representing the scalp, the skull, the cerebrospinal fluid, and the cortex with a current dipole in the occipital region. The potential created by the dipole was calculated assuming quasistatic formulation and linear media. The governing equation was discretized by the finite volume method to ensure the conservation of fluxes even in regions… CONTINUE READING
