Stereotactic intracerebral electroencephalography characterization of insula epilepsy

Takeaway

  • Stereotactic intracerebral electroencephalography (SEEG) characterization of insula epilepsy identified aura as integral to detecting seizure onset and determined that it is related to insula seizure onset zone (SOZ).

Why this matters

    This study demonstrates that insular and opercular onset of seizures can be separated in insula epilepsy, which has not been possible previously due to the rarity of insula epilepsy and inadequate sampling.
