Hippocampal seizure discharge propagating to parietal cingulate cortex, amygdala, and temporal polar cortex

(Left) Combined scalp- and stereoelectroencephalographic depth recording of a right hippocampal seizure discharge propagating into right parietal cingulate cortex (7/1-2) and to amygdala (2/1-2) and temporal polar cortex. An interictal spike train in the right hippocampal electrodes 3/1-2 and 4/2-3 also propagates to the right parietal cingulate gyrus (bottom right). (Contributed by Dr. Heinz Gregor Wieser.)
