Abstract

Chronically implanted depth and subdural electrodes have both been shown to be satisfactory means of localizing epileptogenic foci. Utilizing bilateral mesial temporal depth electrodes, we have localized mesial temporal foci in a large percentage of patients. Depth electrode investigation of a more limited number of patients with suspected extramesial temporal foci has not been as reliable in giving localizing information. We have more recently used subdural electrodes to investigate this latter category of patients, and preliminary findings suggest that this technique may be of localizing value in several subcategories.
