Abstract

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the clinical utility of current-generation dipole modelling of scalp EEG in focal epilepsies seen commonly in clinical practice. METHODS: Scalp EEG recordings from 10 patients with focal epilepsy, five with Benign Focal Epilepsy of Childhood (BFEC) and five with Mesial Temporal Lobe Epilepsy (MTLE), were used for interictal spike dipole modelling using Scan 4.3 and CURRY 5.0. Optimum modelling parameters for EEG source localisation (ESL) were sought by the step-wise application of various volume conductor (forward) and dipole (inverse) models. Best-fit ESL solutions (highest explained forward-fit to measured data variance) were used to characterise best-fit forward ..
