Depth electrodes to monitor of seizures deep in the brain
I’m curious why you decided to have the intercranial EEG? Was it because you were seriously considering having epilepsy surgery? How many seizures were you having prior to the EEG?

My parents made these decisions for me as I was 17 at the time. The doctor recommended surgery so they went ahead with the recommendations to control the many seizures I was having then. It's been over 40 years since then so I have no idea of how many seizures I was having prior to having the depth electrodes inserted.
You take care too.
