The anterior or mesial temporal spike discharges found interictally in patients with focal (partial) seizures with impaired consciousness (complex partial seizures). Similarly, 3-Hz, 6-Hz, and 1- to 2-Hz spike-wave discharges differ in their clinical and prognostic relevance. Moreover, the significance of frankly epileptiform discharges depends on the clinical circumstances in which they are found. Epileptiform spike discharges arising focally in the temporal region are associated most commonly with focal (partial) seizures accompanied by an impairment of consciousness and are activated during drowsiness or sleep.

Sweat artifact is common and is characterized by highamplitude potentials of very low frequency. Low-frequency filters can attenuate these slow waves. INSTRUMENTAL ARTIFACTS Background 60-Hz noise in a restricted number of channels is often related to mismatched electrical impedance of electrode pairs or to the poor application of electrodes so that slight movement alters transiently the impedance of an individual electrode. A 60-Hz interference signal normally is common to the pair of electrodes connected to an amplifier; the differential amplifier essentially discards this common signal.
