Magnetoencephalography (MEG) and EEG reflect postsynaptic currents in
pyramidal cells. MEG is selectively sensitive to tangential currents, typically
produced by fissure walls. Because the bottom of sulci are predilection sites
for FCD lesions, we investigated whether MEG results could predict clinical
outcome in epilepsy surgery patients with FCD. We specially focused on patients
with no visible lesions on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
