mean duration of a single type II spike-and-wave discharge train 
Measurement of the average duration of a single set of type II spike and wave discharges, regular, symmetrical, generalized abnormal electrical discharges in the brain, in a series of episodes separated by normal brain activity, i.e. the average length of time which a type II spike and wave discharge episode lasts. Type II is characterized by local occipital-parietal discharges that are shorter and have less clear waves than spike-wave discharge type I and display an downward polarity in the spikes.
