We compare dynamical properties of brain electrical activity from different recording regions and from
different physiological and pathological brain states. Using the nonlinear prediction error and an estimate of an
effective correlation dimension in combination with the method of iterative amplitude adjusted surrogate data,
we analyze sets of electroencephalographic EEG time series: surface EEG recordings from healthy volunteers
with eyes closed and eyes open, and intracranial EEG recordings from epilepsy patients during the seizure free
interval from within and from outside the seizure generating area as well as intracranial EEG recordings of
epileptic seizures. As a preanalysis step an inclusion criterion of weak stationarity was applied. Surface EEG
