The goal of the presurgical evaluation is to identify the mesial temporal region, additional electrodes are ofen added the putative epileptogenic zone, which is the area of cortex that to the standard electrode locations specifed by the international is necessary and sufcient for the generation of clinical seizures. Tese electrodes consist of cheek (T1/T2), This zone is operationally defned as the minimum amount of mastoid, or sphenoidal electrodes (Sp1/Sp2), or less commonly fo- tissue that, if removed, would result in seizure cessation. The use of these supplementary electrodes has achieved seizure freedom afer a surgical resection. In contrast, others have reported sphenoi- tion that is provided by these other investigative studies, and this dal recordings to be superior to temporal scalp electrodes in ictal has allowed for more patients to be eligible for epilepsy surgery and recordings.
