Objective: recently, the extended brain symmetry index (BSI) was introduced to assist the visual interpretation of the EEG, in particular to quantify both the spatial (left-right) and the temporal spectral characteristics. The BSI has found application in monitoring during carotid endarterectomy, acute stroke and focal seizure detection. Here, we present additional relevant characteristics and a slightly modified version of this index, simulating its behavior as may occur in various clinical conditions, with an emphasis on the detection of cerebral ischaemia.
