We report on the simultaneous and continuous acquisition of EEG and functional MRI data in a patient with a left hemiparesis and focal epilepsy secondary to malformation of cortical development in the right hemisphere. EEG-triggered fMRI localization was previously demonstrated in this patient. In the experiments reported here, 322 spikes maximum at electrode C4 and 126 focal slow waves were identified offline. A hierarchy of models was explored in order to assess the relative contributions of each type of EEG event. Modeling the BOLD response to C4 spikes alone showed an area of activation within the large malformation, adjacent to the area of infolding cortex. However, also modeling slow-waves gave rise to a broader and stronger activation, suggesting that the generators overlap. Motor mapping of the right hand showed activation in the left sensorimotor cortex; left-hand tapping led to a more diffuse area of activation, displaced superiorly into the superior frontal gyrus, and a small area of activation within the lesion. In conclusion, continuous EEG-fMRI is useful to compare the functional mapping of epileptiform activity and eloquent cortices in individual patients
