EEG and SEEG data must be evaluated critically

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


A schematic and theoretical situation is proposed and the localizing value of EEG and SEEG discussed. As surface EEG can give a 'clouded' picture of electric cerebral activity so SEEG can miss or distort the true localization of epileptic abnormalities. In epileptic patients undergoing pre-operatory monitoring, information collected by EEG and SEEG should be verified and discussed in relation to clinical context and data obtained from other investigations.
