Abstract

Dipole localization methods (DLM) are computer-assisted techniques, based on electrical field theory, that provide a model of the source of a scalp-recorded cerebral event. We present the results of the application of DLM to the study of focal epileptic spikes. We obtained solutions located in plausible anatomical regions; furthermore, our results suggest that the analysis of dipole behavior, in terms of orientation and stability, can be a novel approach to extract further information from the EEG signal and to characterize the epileptic focus. In conclusion, DLM look promising non-invasive techniques and potentially useful to study epileptic patients, particularly when a surgical approach is considered.
