How does an EEG work?

How does an EEG work?

Captures brain waves: Scalp electrodes are placed on designated brain areas. They are connected to amplifiers and to computers, which records brain electrical activity, for a minimum of 20 minutes. Information is filtered and displayed on a computer screen. It is interpreted by a neurologist. Different brain waves may be abnormal or normal. Eeg may be used to detect seizures, or other non-seizure abnormalities. ...Read more

You will not feel anything. ...Read more

What does an infant EEG entail?

What does an infant EEG entail?

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 more

Do you not want to seize during eeg?

Not necessarily: Seizures do not usually occur during an eeg which can show abnormal brain activity (epileptiform findings) in about 50% of people with epilepsy during a routine recording. Seizures do not usually occur during a routine recording but may occur in those with frequent seizures during 24 to 72 hour ambulatory or video monitoring. ...Read more
