Abstract

Since Gabor (2) first described the relationship between potential distribution recording from the body surface and epicardial electric surface, many authors such as Brazier (1) have applied the theory to locating an electric dipole in the brain. Homma et al., (3) have lately developed a new computerized procedure to locate the origin of a current dipole in the human brain. We call this work Dipole Tracing.
