Lennox and Lombroso Lecture: EEG, The New Frontier - 2016 Annual Meeting

EEG is an 80-year old clinical test for the evaluation of patients with epilepsy and most of what clinicians use today was discovered over 50 years ago. The last 10 years have seen a set of major developments that provide improved diagnostic power and stronger links between human epilepsy and experimental models. We review in particular how High Frequency Oscillations, seen from intracerebral and scalp electrodes, are becoming a new marker of epileptogenicity and how the combination of EEG and fMRI provides a unique non-invasive view of the whole brain during epileptic discharges.
