The electroencephalogram (EEG) is a classic noninvasive method for measuring a person's brainwaves and is used in a large number of fields: from epilepsy and sleep disorder diagnosis to brain-computer interfaces (BCIs). Electrodes are placed on the scalp to detect the microvolt-sized signals that result from synchronized neuronal activity within the brain. Current long-term EEG monitoring is generally either carried out as an inpatient in combination with video recording and long cables to an…

With miniaturization of AEEG and seizure anticipation technology, and advancements in the ability to identify the transition from pre-ictal to ictal state, there is realistic hope that patients with refractory epilepsy may gain control over their seizures and enjoy significantly improved quality of life.
Dense array EEG: Methodology and new hypothesis on epilepsy syndromes
Dense array EEG is used in conjunction with a realistic model of head tissue conductivity and methods of electrographic source analysis to determine cerebral cortical localization of epileptiform discharges and hypothesize that all epileptic seizures may be fundamentally corticothalamic or corticolimbic in nature.
