Sir Charles Scott Sherrington is one of my science heroes, so I'm featuring him on my cogsci profile. He is often credited with coining the word "synapse."

I think you covered all the bases. Nice answer!

comment how is tone volume encoded?
There are going to be a lot of projections in the other direction from A1 to the MGN as well, which would be fascinating to study in that regard. I wish I had a ready answer for you, but we'll see if anyone can come up with one.

Seizure detection is a well-researched topic. It's prediction that has remained elusive. If you grab a couple of abstracts off of ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=seizure+detection+EEG, more specific questions will definitely emerge. Try IEEExplore, too, if you have a subscription available to you. There's lots of basic research in signal processing going on with this sort of thing. Your work for your nephew is very noble.

Reading the actual EEG waveforms (manually, if that's what you mean) isn't as paramount as learning to process the files. Since you are already a quantitative person, starting out with something like time-frequency methods would be a good approach. As it is, though, I think this question is too broad.

comment how is tone volume encoded?
Fantastic question. I think the answer is going to lie in the association cortices, since this is as much a tactile and proprioceptive issue as it is an auditory one. That's just a gut feeling, but there must be literature on this somewhere.
