Seizure detection

Seizure detection

  • Automated detection of ictal discharges in adults.
  • Detection takes at the most 5min on a 24h EEG.
  • Runs on routine EEG and LTM EEG.
  • Evaluate detected seizures in seizure review


The seizure detection algorithm has been developed at the Epilepsy Center, Department of Neurology, Universitätsklinikum Erlangen. Detection was optimized for the subset of electrodes which are the representatives for the brain activity of the left hemisphere, the right hemispheres and the midline. The quality of the detection depends on the availability of the following channels

  • Left: F11, FT9, TP9, F7, T7, P7, O1, F3, C3, P3
  • Right: F12, FT10, TP10, F8, T8, P8, O2, F4, C4, P4
  • Midline: Fz, Cz, Pz

At least one channel of each group must be available.
