SEEG Brain Mapping Workshop: Frontal Lobe Epilepsy – Cleveland Clinic
May 4, 2016 - May 7, 2016$1,250
For pragmatic reasons, frontal lobe epilepsies have been separated and allocated to the heterogeneous group of extratemporal epilepsies. Despite improvements in imaging modalities and non-invasive methods of seizure localization, epilepsies originated from the frontal lobes continue to represent a clinical challenge, mainly in patients with non-lesional MRIs. Difficulties in semiology characterization and the complexity of large-scale epileptic networks associated with frontal lobe seizures may be contributing to the challenging task of successfully treating these patients. The aim of this workshop is to demonstrate and exemplify, through a practical and comprehensive approach, the utility of the stereo-electroencephalography methodology in mapping epileptic and functional networks, which are originated or spreading to the frontal lobe areas of the human brain.
- Discuss the analyses methods for ictal video-recordings.
- Explore the correlations between ictal signs, semiology, and EEG patterns.
- Discuss the correlations between the emergence of semiology, early ictal discharges and cortical functional anatomy in SEEG.
- Explore the role of semiology in presurgical investigations, especially in tailoring the SEEG electrode implantation.
- Apply the network concept of seizure organization in practice from planning the implantation to the final resection strategy.
