Dataset Overview


41 y/o man with 4 days of stereotactic EEG (4 depth electrodes) and sleep staging. He had left frontal cingulate lobectomy. Pathology showed cortical dysplasia. Had Class Ib outcome (rare seizures only when misses meds).

The electrodes in the seizure onset zones are: [ 11:14 ].
The electrodes in the resected volume are: [ 1 11 12 33 34 ].

PPT files

These files contain clinical information.

LAY files

These files contain Persyst EEG data.

DAT files

These files contain Persyst EEG data.


  • MAT files contain EEG metadata.
  • MinutesFromStart.mat contains the duration (minutes) from the first EEG sample of the patient to the first EEG sample taken in each session.
  • PatientID-sleep-scores.mat contains information from sleep staging.
    • time: Time at the sleep stage
    • stageCode: The indices that correspond to the sleep stages in stage
    • stage: Sleep stage
    • nonREMsleep: Details during non-REM sleep
  • LAY files can be read with inifile.m, lay_data_read.m, and lay_hdr_read.m.


  • Ensure that the codes are in the active folder or in your MATLAB path.
  • Change the false to true if you want to read the annotations into the header. Not recommended for long clinical EEG.
  • The startIdx and stopIdx are the indexes from the .dat file you are interested in. For the start of the file, startIdx=1. For the end of the file, stopIdx = hdr.datapoints.
    hdr = lay_hdr_read(filename,false);  
    data = lay_data_read(hdr,startIdx,stopIdx);
