Eeg may be used to detect seizures, or other non-seizure abnormalities. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

You will not feel anything. ...Read more

Leads placed on head: Generally a neonatal eeg is completed by placing leads on the babies head in certain spots. The leads are generally pasted on, though sometimes needle probes are used. The brain waves are then monitored usually for several hours, though in special cases the eeg maybe continuous overnight, or even several days. This is done mostly to look for seizure activity, though it can also look for damage. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
