Epilepsy is a very common neurological disease (incidence about 1%). The diagnostic process in epilepsy is still faced with many challenges, in particular to make a reliable estimate of seizure recurrence. At this moment a research project, initiated by Advanced NeuroTechnology (ANT), combining TMS and EEG, is focusing on this question.

Sometimes, remarkable phenomena can be observed in patients suffering epilepsy.[1]
