Abstract

Recent studies show that the brain gamma activity includes both the gamma rhythm (standard EEG) and high frequency (100-1000 Hz) as well as super-high (>1000 Hz) frequency oscillations, as recorded by electrocorticography. As reported in the literature, the high-frequency oscillations (80-500 Hz) are highly informative markers of an epileptic focus. In this review, we analyze features of high-frequency activity associated with the epileptiform activity, and its relation to the seizure onset range. Further study of high-frequency bioelectric activity of the brain is of interest to researchers and clinicians, and may improve the EEG differential diagnosis of epilepsy.
