Abstract

The causes of epilepsy are incompletely understood, and rodent models enable valuable mechanistic investigations. Synchronized video-electroencephalography (video-EEG) data is critical for clinical assessment of seizure events and is similarly important in basic research on epilepsy, but commercial packages offer limited flexibility and are costly. We've developed and here make freely available OpenVEEG, fully open-source software for millisecond-synchronized video-EEG. With only hardware costs, the system price is approximately one-fifth that of a commercial system with similar capabilities. It is straightforward to use, readily extensible, and records robustly on the time scale of weeks.
