The image above is at a 20 second time scale, in order to show the entire event. The clinical report associated with this session contained no mention of seizures. The report seems to describe events like this as bursts, rather than seizures: "the burst of sharp waves are no associated with a change in the patient's behavior". This does represent a very clear change from background, and demonstrates some frequency evolution, so we are tempted to consider events like these as seizures, though we are not completely positive.


1. Would this event be considered as just a burst of sharp waves or a seizure event?
