Editor—Gaskell and colleagues conducted a secondary analysis of a heterogeneous, multicentre database to study the relationship between the presence of frontal alpha-delta EEG patterns and volitional responses assessed after anaesthesia induction using an isolated forearm technique. The authors conclude that that neither the presence of the frontal alpha-delta EEG patterns, nor any other EEG measure that they evaluated, reliably correlated with the volitional responses. Based on the data the authors present, this statement is not correct.
