Automated Detection of Seizures in EEG Recordings of Neonates Event as iCalendar


20 November 2017

2 - 3pm

Venue: Ground floor seminar room (G10)

Location: 70 Symonds Street, Auckland Central

An ABI seminar by Dr Nathan Stevenson, Marie Sklodowska Curie Individual Fellow, University of Helsinki, Finland.


Seizures are a common emergency in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and are treated immediately upon detection with a battery of medications. The visual interpretation of the EEG is gold standard of seizure detection but is not available ‘on demand’ in the vast majority of NICUs. Automated methods offer a potential solution and have been in development for over 25 years. This presentation traces the development of neonatal seizure detection algorithms from signal characteristics and models to methods of performance assessment and translation into clinical practice.
