Recent research in seizure anticipation has shown that "pre-seizure states" can be detected several minutes in advance from analysis of EEG time series. This time frame would allow development and testing of specific seizure prevention techniques. Thus, there is now growing interest to bring these analysis techniques to a broader application in hospitals. Similar demands come from the industry as there is strong interest to incorporate analysis techniques into EEG acquisition systems and, moreover, to develop miniaturized possibly implantable devices for seizure anticipation and possibly prevention. This report gives an overview of the state of the art of seizure anticipation techniques and addresses future requirements to allow realization of seizure anticipation devices.
