System and method for processing, non-concurrently collected, electroencephalogram (EEG) data and resting station functional magnetic resonance imaging (rsfMRI) data, non-invasively, to create a patient-specific three-dimensional (3D) mapping of the patient's functional brain network. The mapping can be used to more precisely identify candidates of resective neurosurgery and to help create a targeted surgical plan for those patients. The methodology automatically maps the patient's unique brain network using non-concurrent EEG and resting state functional MRI (rsfMRI). Generally, the current invention merges non-concurrent EEG data and rsfMRI data to map the patient's epilepsy/seizure network.
