We used dipole source localization methods to model the generators of spontaneous spikes, hand tapping evoked spikes and giant N60 component of somatosensory evoked potentials in children with benign epilepsy with rolandic spikes. We obtained similar dipole solutions for spontaneous and hand tapping evoked spikes, and for the N60 component, suggesting that these phenomena might result from the activation of similar hyperexcitable cortical regions, including somatosensory cortex.
