In this study, a functional clustering approach is proposed and tested for the identification of brain functional networks emerging during sleep-related seizures. Stereo-EEG signals recorded in patients with Type II Focal Cortical Dysplasia (FCD type II), were analyzed. This novel approach is able to identify the network configuration changes in pre-ictal and early ictal periods, by grouping Stereo-EEG signals on the basis of the Cluster Index, after wavelet multiscale decomposition. Results showed that the proposed method is able to detect clusters of interacting leads, mainly overlapped on the Epileptogenic Zone (EZ) identified by a clinical expert, with distinctive configurations related to analyzed frequency ranges. This suggested the presence of coupling activities between the elements of the epileptic system at different frequency scales.
