Pinpointing Seizures

December 1, 2006 By: Barbara G. Goode, Sensors Sensors


Dawn Helton was the fifth patient in the world to try the new Geodesic Sensor Net (GSN), a "high-tech cap" made of electrodes, reports News 14 Carolina. The GSN records brain waves and lets doctors see epileptic seizures as they happen. Use of the cap is intended to replace the current invasive method, where surgeons place electrodes directly on the brain before removing the problem area. (www.sensorsmag.com/1206/SCseizure)
