Creating a biomimetic algorithm to find epileptogenic areas of the brain

Researchers from the HSE University Centre for Bioelectric Interfaces have designed a new method for detecting diagnostic markers of epilepsy, called interictal spikes, using EEG and MEG. Capable of accounting for various errors and artifacts, this method constitutes a valuable addition to the arsenal of means for automatic analysis of electrophysiological recordings in epilepsy patients, especially when the data are noisy. Precise localization of epileptogenic cortical structures can enhance the effectiveness of neurosurgical interventions. The study is published in the Journal of Neural Engineering.
