Sample text

The electrode consists of a sterile needle or fine wire that is insulated, except at its tip, and a physician inserts it percutaneously under local anesthesia so that it lies adjacent to the sphenoid bone, a little in front of the foramen ovale. Other accessory electrodes that are commonly used in the electrophysiologic evaluation of patients with focal seizures and impaired consciousness (previously called complex partial seizures) are surface sphenoidal electrodes, minisphenoidal electrodes, and anterior temporal electrodes.

For descriptive purposes, EEG activity is usually characterized on the basis of frequency. ACTIVITY RECORDED IN THE EEG The mechanisms responsible for the presence of widespread rhythmic activity in the brain are not known. Some means of generating rhythmic activity must be involved, as also must some method of synchronizing the activity of different cerebral regions. Experiments on animals have produced considerable evidence to suggest that the rhythmic activity normally recorded from the scalp has a cortical origin, being derived from the graded postsynaptic potentials of cortical neurons.

In most instances, high-frequency filters should not be used for this purpose, except as a last resort, because they simply alter the appearance of the artifact (sometimes so that it looks more like EEG fast activity) and also influence the background EEG. Movement produces artifact in addition to muscle activity. Any movements may produce such artifacts, and these will vary in appearance depending on the nature and site of the movement. Movements arising at a consistent site may be monitored by a pair of electrodes and recorded on a separate channel.
