I am investigating the role of theta and though I know the basics, I am trying to look deeper than previous studies. The problem with this is that hippocampal theta activity cannot be 'seen' using EEG equipment- only cerebral cortex activity can. It is said that cerebral theta activity may not be indicative of hippocampal theta activity. As such, is there a way of determining this, and is it possible to investigate theta activity more thoroughly using EEG?

Doesn't it depend on how sophisticated your monitoring equipment is?

Your son is a day dreamer. I imagine he is probably a very intelligent individual, and also prone to distraction and emotions. Sounds like he doesn't have epilepsy, but if the theta activity is in great excess, he may be diagnosed as being ADD or something to that extent. What this really means is your son has a gift and is probably extremely creative. I suspect that his headaches are stress induced.

Can you describe the headaches and onset?
Your sons typical schedule?



*As for the original poster who will likely never see this

Plenty of discussion of theta activity:
