Anterior-Posterior (AP) Gradient

Present, absent or reverse. An AP gradient is present if at any point in the epoch, there is a clear and persistent (at least 1 continuous minute) anterior to posterior gradient of voltages and frequencies such that lower amplitude, faster frequencies are seen in anterior derivations, and higher amplitude, slower frequencies are seen in posterior derivations. A reverse AP gradient is defined identically but with a posterior to anterior gradient of voltages and frequencies.
