We measured the magnetoencephalogram (MEG), electroencephalogram (EEG), and electrocorticogram (ECoG) after stimulation of contralateral median nerve in four patients with partial epilepsy evaluated for surgery. Quantitative localization estimates from equivalent source modeling were compared with locations of central fissure in hand sensorimotor area determined by cortical stimulations, intraoperative photographs, and examination after excision in frontal lobe. We also measured MEG and EEG in…

Magnetoencephalography in presurgical epilepsy evaluation
TLDR
Because MEG and EEG yield both complementary and confirmatory information, combined MEG-EEG recordings in conjunction with advanced source modeling techniques will further improve the noninvasive evaluation of epilepsy patients and constantly reduce the need for invasive procedures.
Presurgical electromagnetic functional brain mapping in refractory focal epilepsy
TLDR
Electroencephalography and MEG are a validated and robust technique for noninvasive functional mapping of the SM1 cortex and verbal language hemispheric dominance in patients with refractory focal epilepsy.

Magnetoencephalographic localization in pediatric epilepsy surgery: Comparison with invasive intracranial electroencephalography
TLDR
MEG is a powerful and accurate tool in the presurgical evaluation of children with refractory nonlesional extratemporal epilepsy and nine of 11 patients became either seizure‐free or had a greater than 90% reduction in seizures after surgery.
Dipole Localization of Human Induced Focal Afterdischarge Seizure in Simultaneous Magnetoencephalography and Electrocorticography
TLDR
There appeared to be the expected stepwise increase in mean localization error progressing from the phantom, to the somatosensory evoked responses (SER), to the seizure of a patient with partial epilepsy.

Localization of magnetic interictal discharges in temporal lobe epilepsy
TLDR
Three young adults with intractable complex partial seizures were studies by electroencephalography, magnetoencephalographic, and electrocorticography to find magnetic spikes were localized to the anterotemporal lobe, and the EEG spikes were localization somewhat anterior or posterior to the magnetic spikes.
Localization of human sensorimotor cortex during surgery by cortical surface recording of somatosensory evoked potentials.
TLDR
An alternative localization procedure is presented that involves cortical surface recordings of somatosensory evoked potentials (SEP's), providing accurate and rapid localization in patients under either local or general anesthesia, and was validated in 18 patients operated on under local anesthesia.
CLINICAL APPLICATIONS OF STUDIES ON STEREOTACTICALLY IMPLANTED ELECTRODES IN TEMPORAL-LOBE EPILEPSY.
TLDR
Electroencephalography was necessary to provide a confirmatory test and a reliable means to distinguish these states of seizures, now termed temporal-lobe epilepsy, and it is established that at least two-thirds of patients have complete or very good relief from seizures.
A reliable method for localizing deep intracranial sources of the EEG
TLDR
It is concluded that DLM is a valid and reliable noninvasive method for localizing the intracranial source of some scalp-recorded EEG potentials, and that in some patients, use of this method may obviate the need for depth electrode implantation.

TLDR
This paper reviews the application of quantitative dipole localization methods derived from electrical field theory to the problem of E P source identification and illustrates their value and limitations by applying them to empirical EP data.

TLDR
It is found that sphere radii and conductivities influence especially the strength of the EEG equivalent dipole and not its location or direction, and the MEG produces better location estimates than the EEG whereas the reverse is found for the component estimates.
EEG electrode sensitivity--an application of reciprocity.
TLDR
The reciprocity theorem is used to determine the sensitivity of EEG leads to the location and orientation of sources in the brain and the following conclusions are drawn.
