sharpt contour waves vertex/myogenic artifacts

Have a little girl 6 years 5 mos. who had a 24 hour EEG/VEEG recently.  Conclusion is "Sleep Myoclonus."  But report reads "multiple episodes of whole body jerks preceded by myogenic artifacts" (that's electrical build up of activity in the muscles prior to the jerking... so I'm guessing that documents the myoclonus); but also reads "sharp contour waves of high amplitude over the vertex that are suspect".  What is that?  Report also notes episodes of whole body jerking don't have an EEG correllate other than the myogenic artifact.
