The temporal dynamics of characteristic oscillatory patterns in an epileptic EEG are analyzed. A statistical analysis of time gaps between oscillatory events on EEG records is performed following the automatic segmentation of EEG signals. Both sleep spindles and spike-wave discharges exhibit intermittency dynamics, and the collective dynamics of these patterns is characterized by the intermittency of intermittencies.
