Brain interictal and pre-ictal epileptiform discharges (EDs) are transient events occurred between two or before seizure onsets visible in intracranial electroencephalographs. In the diagnosis of epilepsy and localization of seizure sources, both interictal and ictal recordings are extremely informative. For this propose, computerized intelligent spike and seizure detection techniques have been researched and are constantly improving. This is not only to detect more EDs from over the scalp but also to classify epileptic and non-epileptic discharges. Tensor factorization and deep learning are two advanced and powerful techniques which have been recently suggested for ED detection. Here, our main contribution is to review recent ED detection methods with emphasis on multi-way analysis and deep learning approaches. These techniques have opened a new window to the epilepsy diagnosis and management spheres.
