Example text

Improved spatial resolution may be required when brain mapping is of interest. Mapping constitutes a spatial analysis technique in which the EEG activity is represented as a topographic map projected onto the scalp [20]. Using too few electrodes may result in aliasing in the spatial domain, and, consequently, the electrical activity will be inaccurately represented. Studies have indicated that the total number of electrodes used in brain mapping applications should be 64 or higher in order to provide sufficient detail [21].

While the descriptions by necessity are kept brief, it is nevertheless hoped t h a t they will help illustrate the importance of signal processing in various E E G applications. The interested reader is referred to the specialist literature for more information on these topics. 1 Epilepsy A person with epilepsy suffers from seizures during which sudden bursts of uncontrolled electrical activity occur in a group of neurons of the cerebral cortex. Epileptic seizures are manifested in m a n y different ways depending on where the origin (focus) of the electrical activity is located and how different areas of the brain become successively recruited during a seizure.

Their presence indicates a deviant neuronal behavior often found in patients suffering from epileptic seizures [15]. , epileptic seizures. 2. The EEG--Electrical Activity Measured on the Scalp 35 The clinical definition of SSWs is somewhat ambiguous, but both types of waveforms are generally characterized by a steep initial upstroke. A spike is differentiated from a sharp wave by its duration: a spike has a duration in the range 20-70 ms, while a sharp wave is 70-200 ms long. Although the waveform morphology is essentially monophasic, it is not uncommon to observe both bi- and triphasic waveforms.
