Mapping of scalp potentials by surface spline interpolation.


Evoked potentials and EEGs record punctate electrical activity at electrode sites. To represent the overall potential distribution on the entire scalp it is necessary to interpolate between these sampled values. Surface splines are mathematical tools for interpolating functions of two variables. In comparison to the classical methods of interpolation, based on linear combination of the potentials of the 4 nearest electrodes, spline methods are smoother, give more precisely located extrema and converge faster toward the 'true' potential surface when the number of recording electrodes is increased. These advantages are at the expense of lengthier computation time.
