It seems straightforward: find the seizure focus, take it out, the seizures stop. Advances in neuroimaging and in electroencephalography (EEG), including the use of intracranial electrodes, should make this even easier.
In this issue, Alarcón et al(see page 474) compare the results of seizure surgery among patients with normal, or with abnormal, neuroimaging and who did, or did not, undergo recordings with intracranial electrodes.1 All patients had scalp EEG and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
