I have had electronic brain stimulation for Epilepsy.  They (The Cleveland
Clinic) placed subdural electrodes on my temporal and occipital lobes.

Recording of my seizures was done to determine the seizure focus.
Stimulation was done to verify my speech center and visual fields.  

The siezure focus was able to be removed (my left hippocampus).  I am no
longer having complex-partial seizures.

An additional  idea for you to look into!
