Re: Confused on test results

In general, our seizures occur in a specific region of the brain, not both hemisphears (left and right sides). There are cases where the electrical activity crosses over but not overly common. Usually it is isolated to one region of the brain that the activity will appear different.

It said "and it was not focal" meaning it (electrical activity) was not isolated. It's a lot of tech speak at this time. Your Doctor can help explain what it was saying a lot better than we can IF it means anything at all. You may be trying to read too far into this without any training.

I always had a hard time understanding the cycle rate and what exactly that means in relation to normal brain activity and what they triggered us with, and what a recorded seizure reads, and what other responses read out at (speech, visual, memory emotion etc.).
