The focal cortical dysplasia (FCD) é the most common cause of pharmacoresistant epilepsy in childhood, with a good prognosis of seizure free after surgery when the entire lesion is removed. In some cases, the FCDs can be easily identified in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exams, whereas others have negative MRI or MRI with subtle changes. More efficient methods of diagnosis and identi...
Epilepsies are disorders of functionally and anatomically connected neural networks, which can be associated with the variability of ictal phenomena, interictal behavior and prognosis. So far, studies of abnormalities of neural networks in epilepsies were based on the analysis of groups of patients. However, it is known that there is significant inter individual variation in the clinica...
Parkinson's disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disease characterized by the degeneration of the dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra. Its etiology is not fully known, but it is believed that there is an interaction between genetic and environmental factors. The motor symptoms are bradykinesia, rigidity, resting tremor and postural instability. One important clinical characteris...

The use of invasive EEG monitoring is still necessary to the determination of the ictal onset zone (IOZ) in a significant number of patients with refractory epilepsies underwent pre-surgical evaluation. The development of techniques that allow the noninvasive determination of the IOZ may reduce the morbidity and costs involved in the preoperative evaluations of these individuals. The co...
