These characteristics include epileptiform spikes, sharp waves, and temporal intermittent rhythmic delta activity. Thus, scalp EEG continues to be an essential tool in the diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy [2, 3] because of the high specificity and high sensitivity of IEDs for seizures [4, 5]. Of note, for patients with known central nervous system disease and no history of epilepsy, the specificity of IEDs may be considerably lower [6]. Although the fundamental concepts of EEG recording have stayed the same for the past 80 years, advances in digital computer technologies have led to tremendous practical improvements in how the EEG is recorded, viewed, and archived.
