‘Physiological activity and artefacts in the human epileptic brain studied with intracerebral depth EEG electrodes’ reviews (i) the various expressions of normal physiological EEG activity at different sites of the brain and (ii) provides an overview of the most common artefacts that can be observed with intracerebral electrodes. All physiological rhythms known from scalp EEG can be observed in intracerebral EEG recording, but their features may change depending on the sites of the brain investigated. A recent multicentre study analysed these differences in topographical distribution using a common stereotactic space. The data are available as an open web resource. The chapter further underlines the importance of artefact identification in intracerebral EEG: Although artefacts are less frequent than in scalp EEG, non-physiological artefacts in particular may still pose problems. This chapter is written for clinical neurophysiologists, epileptologists, and researchers interested in intracerebral EEG recording.
