Magnetoencephalography in extratemporal epilepsy

Magnetoencephalography in extratemporal epilepsy

Journal of Clinical Neurophysiology 17(2): 190-200

Epilepsy surgery candidates with extratemporal foci represent a particular diagnostic and therapeutic challenge, because of anatomic and functional features of the pertaining areas. In the last decade, novel developments in the field of electrophysiological techniques have offered new approaches to detailed localization of specific epileptic discharges as well as eloquent regions. Magnetoencephalography, in combination with neuroimaging data and simultaneously recorded EEG, yields promising results to clarify centers of epileptic activity and their relationship to structural abnormalites and functionally significant areas. Examples are given to illustrate the range of applications of this method as a contribution to routine presurgical evaluation.
