The discharge is often sharply contoured, sometimes taking on a triangular or saw-tooth appearance. The sharp component is surface negative. Amplitudes are 30–60 µV, and the discharge has a wide field centered on the mid temporal to anterior temporal regions. The discharge may persist in rhythmic form, with frequencies of 4–7 Hz, for more than 10–20 seconds or, more commonly, may appear briefly for 2–5 second runs. On some occasions, just a single wave, sharply contoured, may be seen. , is monorhythmic) throughout its course and does not evolve or change to progressively slower frequencies.

The patient or family can mark typical events on the device to alert the reviewer to an appropriate event location on the record. Ambulatory EEG is particularly useful to quantify 3-per-second spikeand-wave discharges most often occurring during sleep, and often not captured during routine outpatient EEG recording.

Ambulatory EEG can sometimes provide lateralizing data, but is probably not adequate for surgical localization.

Seizures that persist despite adequate medication may be misclassified or may not be epilepsy. EEG, especially in young patients, or trigger spike-andwave discharges that are usually generalized. Repetitive flashes of a strobe light at frequencies ranging from 2 to 20/sec usually trigger a normal occipital response voltage called photic driving. In some, the photic response may be markedly asymmetric, suggesting dysfunction of the underlying occipital brain region. Others, however, may be photosensitive, and the flash triggers diagnostic spike- and-wave discharges.
