Section 2. CNP Techniques Used in Presurgical Evaluation of the Epilepsies.
2.1 Non-invasive EEG in the definition of the irritative zone (H.M. Hamer, N. Katsarou). 2.2 Magnetoencephalography in the definition of the irritative zone (C. Baumgartner, E. Pataraia). 2.3 Invasive EEG in the definition of the irritative zone (F. Rosenow, K.M. Klein, H.O. Lüders). 2.4 Electrocorticography in the definition of the irritative zone: its role in the era of multi-channel EEG and modern neuroimaging (A. Palmini, H.-I. Kim, F. Mugnol). 2.5 Automatic detection of interictal epileptiform discharges (R.C. Burgess, J.P. Turnbull). 2.6 Non-invasive EEG in the definition of the seizure onset zone (N. Foldvary-Schaefer). 2.7 Invasive EEG in the definition of the seizure onset zone: subdural electrodes (I.E.B. Tuxhorn, R. Schulz, B. Kruse). 2.8 Invasive EEG in the definition of the seizure onset zone: depth electrodes (P. Kahane et al.). 2.9 Special recording techniques for detection of the seizure onset zone: DC shifts and high-frequency discharges (A. Ikeda, H. Shibasaki). 2.10 Ictal SPECT in the definition of the seizure onset zone (G.D. Cascino et al.). 2.11 Automatic detection of epileptic seizures (J. Gotman). 2.12 Automatic seizure detection by ECG analysis (R.C. Burgess). 2.13 Cortical stimulation in the definition of the stimulation-induced aura zone (R. Schulz). 2.14 Video analysis for defining the symptomatogenic zone (S. Noachtar). 2.15 CT scan and MRI in the definition of the epileptogenic lesion (B. Diehl). 2.16 PET scan in the interictal period: its contribution to evaluation of the functional-deficit and epileptogenic zones (F. Mauguière). 2.17 The role of neuropsychological assessment in the presurgical evaluation of epilepsy surgery candidates (C.S. Kubu, T.T. Lineweaver, G.J. Chelune). 2.18 Intracarotid amobarbital test and fTCD in the lateralization o
