    We report an approach to perform source connectivity analysis from MEG, and initially evaluate this approach to interictal MEG to localize epileptogenic foci and analyze interictal discharge propagations in patients with medically intractable epilepsy.

    Interictal or ictal events in partial epilepsies may project on scalp EEG contralaterally to the side of the epileptogenic lesion. Such paradoxical lateralization can be observed in case of para-sagittal generators, and is likely due to the spatial orientation of the generator, presenting an...

    Objective: It remains controversial whether interictal spikes are a surrogate of the seizure onset zone (SOZ).

    MEG interictal spikes as recorded in epilepsy patients are a reflection of intracranial interictal activity. This study investigates the relationship between the estimated sources of MEG spikes and the location, distribution and size of interictal spikes in the invasive ECoG of a group of 38...

    Introduction The Wada test has been the gold standard for testing cerebral language localisation during presurgical investigation in the past decades. However, during the last few years a shift has occurred in epilepsy surgery programmes towards the use of non-invasive methods, predominantly...
