Wicket waves on EEG

Wicket waves seen as a burst of “spikes” phase reversing at T3 with a left temporal field. They may be unilateral; however, in contrast to interictal epileptiform discharges, they typically occur in bursts. Additionally, there is no associated focal slowing, they do not change the background frequency, and they lack aftergoing slow waves. (Contributed by Dr. William Tatum.)
