Caption

Treatment of epilepsy. Coloured magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans of implants (red) in the brain (blue) of a patient being treated for epilepsy of the temporal lobes. The scans show several views. A sagittal (vertical, from the side) view (upper right) shows the implant angle, the front of the skull (right) and an electrode connection through the back of the skull (left). At upper left, an axial (horizontal) view shows the implants at the level of the eyes and top of the nose (top). The coronal (vertical, from the front) views (bottom) show the placement from back (left) to front (right) within the brain. The electrical stimulus from the electrodes is designed to counter the chaotic electrical activity seen in epilepsy.
