The SEEG course is a unique initiative which has proved extremely successful since 2010. The success of the course has led to duplicate this initiative in North America since 2012 and in Asia since 2017 with similar enthusiasm from participants.

Each time, groups of participants work on actual patient data under the permanent supervision of SEEG experts from most experienced Centers in the world .After reviewing digitized scalp-EEG video, MRI, and PET data, each group make decisions on performing and designing an optimal SEEG investigation. They then review and interpret the SEEG findings, and eventually recommend a surgical decision. Each group’s conclusion is thoroughly discussed during plenary sessions.

He is acknowledged as an international expert on presurgical assessment of drug-resistant epilepsies, including SEEG investigations, with more than 25 years of experience in the field. His area of research includes the characterization of epileptogenic networks using intracerebral recordings and stimulation, the assessment of physiological networks by analysing intracranial EEG oscillatory responses to different cognitive tasks, and the implementation of novel surgical therapies such as deep brain stimulation.



Philippe Ryvlin, MD, PhD, is Professor of Neurology and Chair of the Department of Clinical Neurosciences at the University Hospital of Lausanne (CHUV), Switzerland, and Director of the Epilepsy Institute (IDEE) in Lyon, France. He is the President of the European Epilepsy Monitoring Association (EEMA) and holds an honorary Professorship in epilepsy surgery at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark.
