The real head model has been used for the accurate scalp potential modeling. The realistic shapes of head tissues were derived from a set of 2-D magnetic resonance images (MRI) by extracting surface boundaries for the major tissues such as the scalp, the skull, the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), the white matter, and the gray matter. From boundary data a 3-D volume generic head model has been constructed and a mesh for an arbitrary complexity head shape has been generated for finite-element method (FEM) modeling. This paper first addresses the use of this realistic finite elements head model to solve the EEG forward problem. The accuracy and computational time of the potential modeling are then examined.
