Invasive extraoperative EEG using subdural grids and strip electrodes is indicated for well-selected patients with suspected temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) to confirm and delineate the epileptogenic zone prior to resection. This chapter discusses indications, hypothesis, and strategy for implantation of subdural electrodes. The emphasis is on a practical approach, with patients with MRI-negative and MRI-positive TLE being discussed separately and with a number of illustrative cases being presented.
