It is our pleasure to present the European EEG database to the research
community, which includes long-term EEG recordings of more than 250
Additionally, it contains extensive meta-data of clinical and technical
details of the recordings and the patients. It was compiled by the
European Union funded project EPILEPSIAE.
Per patient, on average 10 seizures (range 4-94) occurred during the
recordings which lasted on average one week (range 4 to 21 days).
Sampling rates of 250-2500 Hz were used. Based on standardized
annotations, comprehensive information about the recordings, the
electrodes used, seizure semiology and seizure localization were
In order to take a more detailed look at the content of the database,
you are very welcome to visit www.epilepsy-database.eu, where exemplary
EEG recordings and metadata are available.
The datasets may not only be useful for the fields of seizure detection
and prediction, but also for general neurophysiology, epileptology,
computational neuroscience, as well as for teaching purposes.
Due to the substantial workload necessary to maintain the database and
to provide it to the public, we need to charge a fee for access to the
datasets. During the initial period, a subset of 30 recordings with
intracranial electrodes and 30 with surface electrodes will be
We hope that the database is of considerable benefit for the research
