Available: 07/25/17, Expires: 12/31/19

This is a prospective study of high density (256 electrode) EEG for electrical source localization of epileptic foci. The student's role would include screening patients for study enrollment, learning EEG recording techniques, and preparation of EEG and imaging data for analysis. The student would gain experience in EEG recording, EEG pattern recognition, electrical source localization, and quantitative EEG techniques. Experience in Matlab, EEGLab, or signal processing are beneficial but not required.
