Abstract

Focus determination in focal epilepsies is not always without problems. The traditional methods, EEG and cranial computerized tomography (CCT), often provide inconclusive results. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has proved an important improvement (2), and further information maybe expected from advanced metabolic studies of brain function (2).
