Identification of brain regions involved in epilepsy using common spatial pattern

Abstract : In this paper, we aim to identify the regions involved in epilepsy from intracerebral EEG (iEEG) of patients suffering from focal epilepsy. Identification of regions involved in epilepsy is important for presurgery evaluations. The proposed method is based on common spatial pattern (CSP) using two types of time intervals: 1) periods including interictal epileptiform discharges (IED), and 2) periods excluding IEDs or abnormal physiological signals. The method is applied on the iEEG recordings of one seizure-free patient after resective surgery. The results are compared with seizure onset zones visually inspected by the epileptologist. The congruent IED regions with visually detected seizure onset zones are encouraging results. Moreover, the application of CSP method for the identification of IED regions seems interesting as this method is fast and simple.
